The Rewind No 61 : Cortex – Troupeau Bleu


Cortex - Troupeau Bleu

“Troupeau Bleu” is the 1st and most famous album which had been recorded by the French Jazz-Funk band legend, Cortex. The obscure French jazz group that’s been a favourite of funky collectors for years!

In 1974, Alain Mion, Alain Gandolfi & Jeff Huttner formed the mythical band, Cortex, who then recorded several LPs, including the legendary “Troupeau Bleu”.

“Troupeau Bleu”, recorded in 2 days in July 1975, is a real musical U.F.O, an unclassifiable record, a mixing of thousand flavours, the kind of records you will discover listening after listening.

The result is a stunning electric groove with a feeling that’s really fresh, nice and warm, and funky in all the right parts!
