This will be my last post ... for a while.

JAN JANKEJE ‎– Zum Trotz feat. B. LAGRENE

LP Jazzpoint Records ‎– 1016 Germany, 1983


 This is not gypsy jazz despite the presence of Birelli Lagrene and a violinist.  It is high-energy contemporary jazz with hard bop and latin jazz influences.  The themes are all original.  Highly recommended!

Guitar – Bireli Lagrene (guest)
Bass – Jan Jankeje
Drums – Werner Braun

FAREWELL EVERY ONE ....

This will be my last post for quite a while I’m afraid.  I have taken a new long term overseas job which will leave me with little free time for the blog.  Moreover all my LPs will remain in Belgium, I won’t be able to rip anything any longer.

I wish to thank the "old" bloggers who've inspired me (Bacoso, Simon, El Rezah, Ish, Katonah, Arkadin, Inconstant Sol , E-mile, Rodney at BritJazz and many more...), all the contributors, friends and fellow bloggers who have contributed to the success of this blog (onxidlib and Paul D. especially), all the visitors, the regulars who always left a comment … but also the (more numerous) anonymous visitors (about 15 000 every months, sometime even more).

I will continue to visit the blogworld and see how it develops.  If circumstances permit I may revive the blog at a later date, I still have a good number of obscure albums never seen in the blogs to this date.  In a few years, I’ll have much more free time  and, hopefully, improved equipment and skills.

In the meantime, farewell every one, thanks for your support.

  5. Sorry to see you go; this has been a unique blog, one of the most interesting around with some truly obscure (to American ears) but fascinating recordings. I hope to see you online again at some point, but best wishes and best of luck in your new adventures! And thank you for all you've shared.

  6. Sorry to hear about this. Your blog is one of the most interesting on the net, providing rarities that one never would have seen anywhere else.

    I hope you will keep the blog available, even if no new posts are made. I have a backlog of things to listen to and comment on.

  8. I’m also sorry to see you go but can’t thank you enough for all your effort and all of the music you’ve introduced me (us) to. I keep a folder with links to blogs past and present and will look in from time to time to see if you touch base. I do hope you’ll drop a comment, etc. here so we can keep up with how it’s going. In the meantime, good luck with the new job. Will be looking forward………

  27. Wish you all the best for your new life and the new assignment.
    Hopefully I will find some music for you which I shall send you to your new destination.
    Maybe you even find some nice music over there - let's say an equivalent of Geechie (or Geeshie) Wiley f.e.
    Someone like D'Gary could be to your taste...
    But certainly some sounds I have never heard in my life.
    Take care and all the best for you!

  33. I apologize for being one of the selfish, anonymous visitors of your phenomenal blog, but I have to say I'm eternally grateful for the world of music you've presented to me and thousands of others. I hope I'll have these files down the line to pay it forward and keep the legacy of these unsunned classics alive!

    cheers

May God reward you for your selflessness!!!

    1. Bonjour Bhowani,

      Nice from you to enquire about my whereabouts. I'm still in the Indian ocean and for a good while I'm afraid. I shouldn't complain, it's an interesting part of the world but not the ideal place to run a jazz blog. Still have a whole lot of obscure LP to rip but they are all in Brussels. I'm afraid it will have to wait. C'est vrai que le nombre de blogs jazz encore actifs diminue de plus en plus (Orgy in Rhythm ... mais ce serait seulement temporaire). Cheers
