1. Product Details

Souffle Continu Records present the first ever vinyl reissue of Perceptions self-titled album originally released in 1971. The story of Perception takes root in a series of chance meetings which seem at first glance unlikely between musicians from differing horizons be they geographic or esthetic. Jazz Magazine was spot on with an article from the period entitled Perception four conceptions before detailing the origins of the musicians Hungarian for saxophonist YochkO Seffer German for pianist Siegfried Kessler French for bassist Didier Levallet Franco-Vietnamese for drummer Jean-My Truong. It then looked at their varying backgrounds classical academic training for the first two an improvised apprenticeship on the jazz scene for the third in order to point out the seemingly contradictory and perhaps complementary directions which would unite in a singular identity. None of this however was clear from the start as the group began as a trio with a different saxophonist before stabilizing to the first core quartet. Having been remarked on in 1970 by Grard Terrons who was already producer of the cult Alors Michel Portal Clesphre Burton Greene and Basse Barre Barre Phillips Perception was thus given a timely opportunity to record their first album on his Futura Records label. This eponymous opus illustrated with a drawing by YochkO Seffer is the first of a fascinating trilogy. It puts the seal on those complementary contradictions with a lyrically incandescent free jazz made up of startling interactions between complex harmonies and disjointed rhythms. Licensed from Futura / Marge. Remastered from the master tapes. Includes four-page booklet with unpublished photos and an essay by Didier Levallet.
