Nu Jungle Dances

Luminous, undersung LP from Pierre Bastien and Bernard Pruvost, billed by Souffle Continu - whose reissue lovingly replicates the original 1978 release on Jac Berrocal and Michel Potage’s d’Advantage label - as a kind of French riposte to Max Eastley and David Toop’s New And Rediscovered Musical Instruments, “combining research and tradition in a quest for a new imaginary folklore”. The name Nu Creative Methods - sounds like something off Warriors Dance!  - was a nod both to Don Cherry’s ‘Nu Creative Love’ and to Francis Ponge’s book My Creative Method, and its take on free jazz is playful, rangy and unusually lyrical, full of the kind of unusual timbres and powerful, provisional ambiences that only the cream of improvised music can generate…Highly recommended for fans of Fontaine/Areski, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Jacques Thollot’s Intra Music, Berrocal’s La Nuit Est Au Courant ++++
