Rare tracks taken from key albums from Spanish / Balearic Islands musician Joan Bibiloni’s extensive career focusing on the period 1982 to 1989. This will continue the NuNorthern Soul Selected Works series, following on from the x2 Ryo Kawasaki EPs released.

There’s a touch of Brazlian rhyme and Ivan Lins-esque sophisticated swing on NuNorthern Soul`s compilation focused on the output of Mallorquin virtuoso, Joan Bibiloni. Selected Works 1982 To 1989 pulls together 5 essentials from the guitarist, who grew up in the artistic milieu centred around the poet, and author, Robert Graves, and his island home, Canallun, in the isolated island village of Deia. An experience that had Bibiloni witness the birth of Soft Machine, and learn his chops, coming up through prog – contributing to sides by Daevid Allen, Kevin Ayers and Gong.

His own music mixes in flamenco influences from the Spanish mainland and those from North Africa, Algeria and Morocco. Creating a fluid fusion of tradition, folk, musics, and jazz. Basses are slapped, or fretless. Songs are wordless scats of blue seas and matching horizons. Pat Metheny, and Jaco Pastorious-like, in places, his incredible playing is evident throughout. El Cumpleaños de Jaimito is boogie that bumps like Lee Ritenour jamming with Kasso and Yuji Toriyama, while conversely, Alfonsina Y El Mar is a shimmering, intricate, ambient, microtone mirage.

Sleeve notes will come from interviews conducted by Marc Rowlands plus the RSD release will contain a poster of the front cover sleeve artwork.

JIMPSTER/ FREERANGE/ DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR
The Boogie is one of my all time favourites but I’ll be honest, I don’t know much of his other music so this is a real treat! Just listening now and it sounds beautiful so I’d love to get stuck into this properly.

DANIELLE MOORE/ CRAZY P
Phwwwooooooar. Track 2 is magnifico!!! In fact all of it. Fuck can we go abroad now please? Its a beautiful soundtrack to travel which Im missing desperately. It reeks wonderfully of sunny days good food good company and sunsets on Spanish shores.

COLEEEN MURPHY received vinyl
This looks amazing and I will have a listen. Sorry I haven’t getting back to you. You won’t believe this but I don’t actually have a CDJ with USB capabilities so I can’t play anything new unless its on vinyl. With no gigs, I just can’t spring to buy one at the moment but I suppose I will have to. I’m itching to do a show with new music so if you have vinyl on things, it would be much appreciated.

RANSOM NOTE
Hope you are safe and well, afraid we are going to pass on featuring on site, love his music but no space at the moment unfortunately, great record! Thanks for sharing our way and wish you well with it.

Loving this to death of course, it's so sublime and Bibiloni's switch between those uber-balearic, wistful jazzy bits and outright synth boogie jams just keeps me engaged. Love that Phil is putting this out!

Balearic jazz goodness... Metheny-esque
