Back in the day, French pianist, composer and all-round jazz superstar Jean-François Quiévreux, a.k.a. Jef Gilson, was up there alongside the likes of peers John Coltrane, Oscar Peterson, and Sun Ra. In a fitting homage to the decades worth of sublime music, and his sad passing away in 2012, Palm Unit have released a lively, honest tribute, upbeat and contemporary re-interpretative vision of his legacy. Big recommendation from us!
