Here’s something I like by Daunik Lazro who's own contributions don’t quite match those on his stellar recent records.
Still Kondo, Lewis and Joelle Leandre have plenty to contribute.
That alone should be recommendation enough.

Hat 2010 (2 lp’s)
Disc 1- ‘sweet zee ‘
Daunik Lazro - alto sax
Toshinori Kondo - trumpet and voice
Jean Jacques Avenel - db

Disc 2 side 1 ‘empire’
(dedicated to jac berrocal)

Daunik Lazro - alto sax,
Raymond Boni - guitar
Carlos Zingaro - violin

Disc 2 side 2  ‘enfances’
Daunik Lazro - alto sax
George Lewis - trb, toys
Joelle Leandre - db, voice

All tracks collectively improvised
Sweet Zee: recorded live at Jazzfestival Willisau on August 27, 1983.
Empire: recorded live at 3rd Sens Music Meeting, France on May 28, 1983.
Enfances: recorded at Dunois, Paris on January 8, 1984. ----

Again a post by sotise which I dare to take over. The above text is by primarely by sotise.
I would like to add that for the re-up the two tracks of  'Sweet Zee' (side A and side B of the double LP) were reinstalled as a continous performance. (This is a new rip not the previous one altered)

And not at least I want to point out that the concert released on the fourth side of this LP was released as CD in 2016. Actually the CD has the complete concert from this day. Available through the label Fou Records .

Thank you very much for providing this recording.

I have been listening to Daunik Lazro lately and I must say, this is a great album.

I have a question though: What do you mean that Daunik's contributions do not match his recent material? Granted, he as matured as a player and added the baritone saxophone to his arsenal, but I wouldn't cut him short on this recording. Lazro and his colleagues are very inspired throughout.

By the way,

I believe the "Enfances" from part two is incomplete.

Superbe and original album that was unknown to me. I saw Daunik Lazro last week on stage with Jean Luc Capozzo, Jean Bolcato and Christian Rollet from the Workshop de Lyon, it was a great concert, we recorded it and will probably broadcast it soon on the show of Jazz and Co
