JACKY GIORDANO ORGAN PLUS (LP)
Reissue of the 1978 album from Jacky Giordano.
An aura of mistery hangs over Jacky Giordano, a studio musician who has mostly worked for library music.
He is the one behind the amazing label Freesound (Schifter, Philopsis, Challenger), but as well on Montparnasse 2000 with Pop in Devil’s Train (reissued on Le Très Groove Club), on Timing (Timing N°1 and Timing N°5, under the nickname Jacky Nodaro), on Musax with Boucles Rythmiques (under the nickname Joachim Sherylee, reissued as well on Le Très Groove Club) or Black Devil Disco Club whose paternity for this record is still disputed between him and Bernard Fêvre. Jacky Giordano wasn’t an altar boy, far from it, and will have sadly been more known for his troubles with his troubles with justice than for his music.
This is his work for the label l’Illustration Musicale (IM) which can now be re-discovered thanks to this new reissue on Le Très Groove Club.
Organ Plus (IM26) is the sequel to Organ (IM 24), also reissued by Le Très Groove Club. The title is misleading here, organ not being preponderant part of the record which honors the Fender Rhodes, string machine, bass synth and clavinet. ‘Be Careful’, ‘Riffologic’, ‘Twillight’ : Jacky Giordano offers slow tempo jazz funk, without loosing his melancholy and low-fi groove that make his tracks immediately recognsibale regardless the record label or nickname.
