MARC MOULIN – SAM SUFFY

MARC MOULIN

SAM SUFFY

2LP

Marc Moulin's debut LP Sam Suffy (1975) is a compelling and unique mosaic of Jazz, Soul, and Electronic elements that employs sampled sounds and sequencers to startling effect, vividly anticipating the music of the not-so-distant future. For all its complexities and innovations, Sam Suffy is above all a sublime listening experience, closer in spirit and scope to trip-hop than the more abstract fusion classics it follows.

Marc Moulin's debut LP Sam Suffy (1975) is a compelling and unique mosaic of Jazz, Soul, and Electronic elements that employs sampled sounds and sequencers to startling effect, vividly anticipating the music of the not-so-distant future.

While rooted in collective improvisation, cuts like the opening "Le Saule" and "Le Beau Galop" foreshadow the emergence of House music via their underlying electronic motifs; even more impressive is the five-part, 17-minute epic "Tohubohu," a remarkable update of Musique Concrète sensibilities that creates drumbeats from water drops and pits trumpeter Richard Rousselet against a herd of hippos.

But for all its complexities and innovations, Sam Suffy is above all a sublime listening experience, closer in spirit and scope to trip-hop than the more abstract fusion classics it follows. The Music On Vinyl 40th Anniversary Edition boasts Blue Note's 2005 30th anniversary remix of "Tohubohu".
