Brigitte Fontaine Comme A La Radio

Brigitte Fontaine
Comme A La Radio


Fronting the Art Ensemble Of Chicago in 1971, her best-known record is also her masterpiece. The eight-minute title track is a total knockout... dazed, alluring, urgent surrealism over deep, funky jazz... On Tanka II named after a form of Japanese poetry she coos and whispers pensively, just skirting ooh-la-la, whilst Areski Belkacem plays hand-drums atop flurries of bass... LEte LEte centres on a repeated motif with individual lines of high-pitched melody on a bed of muted horns... The whole thing is sensational, a stone classic.
