MICHEL SARDABY QUINTET
FIVE CATS BLUES (France, 1967)
Original issue: LP PRESIDENT (1967)
Reissued as SOUND HILLS - SSCD-8136 (CD, 2006)
Here is the second album by the Martinique-born pianist, recorded in 1967. Although it was recorded after BLUE SUNSET (which dates from 65), I’m not sure whether if was released after or before BLUE SUNSET (my copy of the Blue Sunset LP on Disques Debs is dated 1969)

In an interview (here) Michel Sardaby explained that this Live recording was sent to President as a demo but the President Director decided to issue it as it is. With hindsight, I daresay it was the right decision! What would have been the point in re-recording this already excellent set?
