I love the cartoonish drawing of Zantic, but what is the fish or animal he is carrying?
Whilst the cover for Saharienne appears more like one of those wonderful Folio French books one finds in Paris' Quartier Latin:
As mentioned before, it's this last record wherein, reunited with Jean Chevalier (from Zig Zag), he repeats, rather faithfully in some places, the old compositions from that era with as little change as we can hope for given the lateness of the decade. So in a sense we have come full circle with his discography here. The old exemplar Ballade, reinterpreted in 1987:
Don't tell the artist but I find it slightly amusing that these themes lend themselves to both a Saharan and Tibetan world music style, when initially they started out as zig-zaggy chamber music compositions.
Note that he subsequently, in the CD era, made two more albums, 5 km a Bangui, and Hommage a Jaco. Both those I can recommend you safely avoid unless you are, like us, an obsessive-compulsive completist.
