SACHA DISTEL – altitude 10500

Sacha Distel – altitude 10500, Philips b372.662F, 45 rpm (FRA),1959


a very odd one. and it is here because of the whole idea with this recording and its release…. not because of rarity…

This 7″ has music with Sacha Distel on great and creative jazz guitar playing a Django piece “Nuages” in an inspiring way with excellent control. The b – side is a odd chanson in jazz style…

so music is not very adventurous, BUT its recorded onboard a Air France Caravelle in 800 km/ h speed (!) on 10.500 meters altitude!!!! WILD!

is this the only one recorded up in a plane ? I wish that also Derek Bailey would have had such an idea.

I love the way that he french stewardess is ending the B-side.
