A little rarity from the Baschet Brothers, here joigned by the Lasry family (Yvonne, Jacques and Teddy) to form the classic Structures Sonores Orchestra circa late 1950s-early 1960s. Everyone plays the Structures Sonores except Teddy (aged 15) who is on clarinet on the delicious title track, an evocation of a New Orleans slow blues number. In 1973, Teddy Lasry was a founding member of French progressive rock band Magma. All tracks composed or arranged by Jacques Lasry. Instruments on this single include several Crystals (glass rods with plastic cushions or metallic cones as resonators) and percussion on tracks #1 and 4. Pictures below from the Structures Sonores book, Soundworld, UK, 1999.
