    1STEP Process 180g 45rpm Double LP Pressed on VR900-Supreme Vinyl!

    Strictly Limited To 5000 Numbered Pressings!

    Impex Records, we are always looking to create new, value-added audiophile products that expand your enjoyment and immersion in great recordings. In that vein, we are excited to begin 2020 by announcing our new ultra-luxe 180-gram LP series, Impex 1STEP. As with all of our productions we supervise and create every asset by hand and never settle for any asset that isn’t The Best It Can Be.

    The Impex 1STEP process relies on short, tightly-controlled runs that require a new lacquer after each 500 pressings. This unforgiving format has the lacquer skipping the regular father-mother process, going right to a single convert and then pressing. Though this dramatically increases mastering and production costs, it also assures each run is more consistent from disc to disc, with less noise, clearer details and deeper bass.

    Two 180-gram 45-rpm LPs, pressed on VR900-supreme vinyl, and a deluxe booklet are packaged in a heavy-duty 3-sleeve jacket. The jacket is then placed in a cloth-bound slip case that protects your investment and brings a cool retro-modern look to your shelves. Strictly limited to 5,000 pressings!

    Reducing production complexity to just a single “convert” disc between the lacquer and the press greatly improves groove integrity, diminishes non-fill anomalies and increases signal integrity from the master tape to your system.

    Patricia Barber has always been an artist’s artist, harnessing a restless imagination and an intellectualized curiosity to create visionary jazz that breaks boundaries and reorders perceptions. She serves the chase: the unexpected musical note. The irreplaceable word. The irregular beating heart of jazz.

    And Café Blue is the album that best personifies her genius. Spare, turbulent, quirky, and slyly humorous, there is no other jazz masterwork quite like it.

    For our first collaboration with this musical vanguard, Impex’s 1STEP is exclusively cut from original analog work masters and cut by Kevin Gray at CoHearent Audio. The stunning fidelity, breathtaking dynamics and startling spacial realism surpass every other edition of this breakthrough album.

    Jef Gilson – Jef Gilson a Gaveau – SFP 10.004 – 1965

    Official release with the full permission and cooperation of the Estate of Jef Gilson.
    Recorded on May 15, 1965 at Davout Studio, Paris.

    Original LP issue: SFP 10.004.
    Contrary to what the title implies this album is not a concert recording, the original compositions from Jef Gilson that make this program were captured a month after this historic show, at the mythical studio Davout that had just opened that year (The Rolling Stones, The Cure, but also Art Blakey or Chet Baker were to record there before it closed down in 2017).
    The ‘A Gaveau’ title was an expression of proudness and accomplishment for Jef, as playing adventurous jazz in a big-band format in this beautiful venue solely dedicated to classical music since its foundation in 1907 was a groundbreaking act. Martial Solal only had managed to play jazz there before him in a more standard trio format that resulted in a live album called ‘Jazz A Gaveau’.
    Jef Gilson was already active on the jazz scene for years prior to this recording as he started performing with Claude Luter and Boris Vian just after WWII. But his first album, already a big band playing his compositions, was only released 4 years before this one, in 1961, with and apt title ‘Enfin !’ (at last !).
    Strongly independent and with radical and original views on jazz, Jef was a tough and hard-working fellow. At that time he already was a pianist, composer, arranger, sound engineer, producer and a music theorist (he later wrote a controversial book on harmony). Jef wouldn’t compromise on anything and by design self-produced most of his records. SFP was a co-op label where self-produced artists could find a home. It was a temporary one for Jef before he founded his own studio and his PALM label at the beginning of the 70s.
    Journalist and critic for JAZZ HOT, Jef was always on the look-out for new talents. Some of the musicians who he directs on this album are barely 20 years old and yet unknown, but many would soon be rising jazz stars and a few of them are still recording and performing to this day. You can still attend shows in France by Michel Portal, Bernard Lubat or Jacques Di Donato who all started their career in Jef’s big band.
    Jef of course spotted immediately the young Woody Shaw who has just been invited to Paris a few months before by his friend reedman Nathan Davis who was already a figure on the Parisian club scene. Both of them have recorded this album only a week after their session for the saxophonist’s second album Peace Treaty.

    Nathan Davis Sextet – Peace Treaty – SFP 10.003 – 1965
    Recorded on May 7th, 1965 at Studio de la Comédie des Champs-Elysées, Paris.

    Original LP issue: SFP 10.003.
    One of the first true moments of genius from saxophonist Nathan Davis – a mid 60s European session cut for the tiny SFP label – and a record that’s even rarer than his early classics for MPS! The sound here is similar to the MPS sides – a mixture of soul jazz and modal jazz – served up with a bit more freedoms than Davis might have gotten on the US scene, and featuring a lineup that includes Woody Shaw on trumpet, Jean-Louis Chautemps on baritone sax, Rene Urtreger on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. The tight rhythm of Woode and Clarke is a nice counterpoint to the modernism of Davis and Shaw – Davis works a bit on soprano, which sounds especially great! Titles include “Peace Treaty”, “Klook’s Theme”, “Now Let M’ Tell Ya”, “Kansas City Special”, and “Sconsolato”. (Review courtesy of Dusty Groove)

    Art Blakey & The New Jazzmen – Live in Paris ’65
    Limited to 2,000 copies. (P) &(C) 2020.

    A never-before released Art Blakey 1965 live recordings.
    First official release with the full permission and cooperation of the Art Blakey Estate & INA (Institut National de l’Audiovisuel).
    Available on vinyl only. No CD, No Digital is scheduled.
    A truly powerhouse quintet!
    Art Blakey, Live in ’65 boasts an exceptional one-hour concert from Paris in 1965. This performance showcases one of the few undocumented Blakey bands, the New Jazzmen, featuring Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Jaki Byard on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, Nathan Davis on sax, and, of course, Blakey on drums.
    Freddie Hubbard’s incendiary playing on “Blue Moon” and the blistering 24-minute version of his own “Crisis” shows that he was one of the most innovative trumpeters in jazz history.
    On this live session, the audiences seem to have been enthusiastic and appreciative. “Everywhere we’d go people would say, This is the best Jazz Messengers we’ve heard!”, according to Davis. “And because of the way Jaki would play and Reggie would go, it was like a semi-freedom thing – with Messengers heads, you know, but when we got to soloing…! And Blakey was ridin’ and floatin’ the time…but he would always be loose enough to follow, to keep it going. He’s one helluva musician.”

    Recorded at Palais de la Mutualité, Paris, France, November 3, 1965.
