First ever reissue of impossible to find French soundtrack by Steve Potts. Mixing elements of spiritual jazz, free funk and dirty grooves, the album was mixed by Jef Gilson. In 1975, Steve Potts left Steve Lacy for a time to compose 'Musique Pour Le Film D'un Ami' following the proposition from the film's director Joaquín Lledo. With guest musicians from varied horizons (Ambrose Jackson, Jean-Jacques Avenel, Frank Abel, Elie Ferre, Christian Escoude), the saxophonist recorded a soundtrack ranging from modal jazz to free funk and from dirty grooves, to java wah-wah with disconcerting elegance. Rather than blaxploitation, Potts and his group offer us their mixploitation made in Paris which would be recognised way beyond the boundaries of La Defense.

Also available: MUSIQUE POUR LE FILM D'UN AMI (CD).
