Pierre Cavalli - The fantastic guitar sound of Pierre Cavalli [1973]


Original Italian pressing on JOKER label (SM 3478), from 1973. Italian-only project from the cult Swiss jazz guitarist famous for his Un Soir Chez Norris / Chasse A L'Homme French OST single. Cavalli plays all kinds of very stylish and very funky rhythms using wah wah pedals / fuzz distortion box and other studio trickery. Several important compositions like the stunning psychedelic funk cum bumpy samba - bossa of THE TOAD, the groovy horns / orchestral strings and scat chorus theme ONCE WE WERE IN LOVE, the twisted and super-funky PLANT A SEED with psychedelic fuzz motifs and the funky beats / basslines and trippy riffing throughout WINTER WIND. Killer breaks burst out of nowhere on the otherwise mellow, EASY GOIN' too. Wonderful backing orchestra and singers with a now sound / euro Library / soundtrack feel. Track for track, this Lp is even better than his German-only, Souvenirs From Brazil session. 



                                                    Enjoy!

Thank you. A great guitarist, although the sound is rather dated.

Hi. I just recently started a music blog of my own meant to highlight new music (as in newly released but also just new to me) that I happen to come across. I also like to do some research of whatever I find. I just heard 'Un soir chez Norris' today, and found some more of Pierre Cavalli's work, but can't really find any info online about Pierre as a musician other than a deutsch wikipedia page. Where do you think I can find something on him?

Also, I just saw your blog today. It's great, the kind of thing I hope mine can become. Anyway, let me know if you can help me out on Pierre. Thanks!
