Fabiano Orchestra BUTTERFLY ISLAND Vinyl Record

Fabiano Orchestra BUTTERFLY ISLAND Vinyl Record
Talented multi-instrumentalist Jean-Francois Fabiano is still relatively unknown to most of US while his career reflects both his ability and his taste for various experiences. Born in Paris from a musician father who worked with Henri Salvador and Sydney Bechet, the young Fabiano quickly learned to play drums and guitar and formed his first band, Bijou, at the early age of 14. Following Economy studies in Annecy, near Switzerland, Fabiano gets to play regularly with horn player Byron Pope's Speed of Light and with a 4 drummers band called Pulse, together with Steve McCall, Kenneth Tyler and Bruce Carrington. He also records with Steve Lacy in 1973 ('Scratch' at Saravah) and Alain Bellaiche in 1974 ('Sea Fluorescent' for WEA). in 1978, he brings together an amazing all-star band of musicians to record 'Butterfly Island' with his new band Fabiano Orchestra for Franck Riahi's tiny label Franck R. The line-up includes west-indies legend Velo as well as US jazz masters like Clifford Jordan, Marvin 'Hannibal' Peterson or Carter Jefferson. This superb casting gave the album a unique sound, a perfect blend of west-indies grooves ('Fo Ca Change' or 'Creole') with contemporary spiritual Jazz fusion (the superb 'Pointe Des Chateaux' or the title track). After gigs in Canada and in the USA, Fabiano became Gato Barbieri's permanent drummer for numerous years and started a new career as a movie soundtrack composer while touring around the world with many different artists (Robert Charlebois, Jeff Joseph,...). He is currently launching a new band, Fabiano World Unit, with recording projects soon to be achieved. Nearly impossible to find since his release date, 'Butterfly Island' has gained through the years a cult status amongst Jazz and Rare Groove collectors throughout the world. While the main track 'Pointe Des Chateaux' has appeared on a few compilations, the full album remains a mystery to most music lovers. Superfly Records are proud to make this extraordinary record available again on it's original format for the first time in more than 30 years.
