Boillat Therace

Boillat Therace Quintet (LP)

Label: We Release Jazz

Format: LP

Genre: Jazz

Preorder: To be released in late August 2020


LP version. We Release Jazz present its sixth release, a reissue of Boillat Thérace Quintet's self-titled album, available for the first time since its original limited private pressing in 1974. Full of prolific and inspired local clusters and boosted by the recently launched Montreux Jazz Festival, the Swiss jazz scene was vibrant and inventive in the 1970s, notably in the region surrounding Lake Geneva. This is precisely where jazz activist and brilliant pianist Jean-François Boillat and wind instrument master Raymond Thérace formed their quintet whose dazzling debut album was recorded in 1974. An absolute Lemanic gem of the soul-jazz/modal kind, the self-titled album includes superb covers of Freddie Hubbard's "Straight Life", Keith Jarrett's "In Your Quiet Place", and Rahsaan Roland Kirk's "Sweet Fire", plus groovy original compositions from the Boillat-Thérace crew. Helvetian fun facts: the velvety "1224" is dedicated to Geneva's public transport line Tram 12, and one exquisitely funky track on the album is named after the famed yet elusive (and locally legendary) Swiss Marmite: "Cenovis"! This is reissued in conjunction with Boillat Thérace Quintet's My Greatest Love featuring Benny Bailey from 1975 (WRJ 007CD/LTD-LP). Swiss jazz bliss!
