Beb Guerin was a Hero to the clown in his formative, despite the latter-day nonsense spewed in certain quarters about "bad French Rhythm sections". His performances on classic BYG's are high-water marks in unique,creative bassmanship.
This particular album is a latter example of the best French free-jazz stuff; thanks for exposing it to a wider audience!
If anyone has "Beb" stories or biographical knowledge, how 'bout posting it here for us to learn from please. And by the way,"GO Washington WIZARDS!"
