Roland Bocquet - Paradia
Sourced from the original masters, this reissue of Roland Bocquet's 1977 solo album Paradia sounds as immaculate as ever. Roland was the keyboardist for the French band Catharsis, and took his chops to an exploration of French chanson, Latin fusion, scenic solo piano visions, late 70s synth jaunts and exactly what one might want to hear if on a sun drenched sailing afternoon. "Exotique" is a special standout for its ocean wave sounds frothing underneath a gorgeously filtered drum machine beat.
For fans of Pascal Comelade, Mort Garson, Dominique Guiot, ZNR, Vladimir Cosma, movie soundtracks, library music, and unclassifiable gems.
