A lifetime in jazz from the illustrious French musician, producer, composer, arranger, band leader, sound engineer, music teacher, label-owner, and multi-instrumentalist par excellence!

With his career spanning the best part of a century, Gilson has made music with a who’s who of European and American jazz greats, has written, performed on and recorded innumerable film scores, albums and 45s, ran the Palm jazz record label… yet despite all this the French jazzman remains criminally under appreciated by so many jazz fans.

High points include the awesome modal masterpiece Modalite Pour Mimi; Chakan and Agnus Dei which feature a cathedral choir, and lesser-known private recordings such as Valerie’s Waltz and Valse a Quatre Temps. We include field recordings made on his trip to Madagascar, including a percussive version of the Lloyd Miller favourite Chant Inca and an unforgettable version of Pharoah Sanders’ cult classic ‘The Creator has a Masterplan’.
