Roland Bocquet - Paradia, 1977


French composer and bandleader Roland Bocquet's sprawling library/soundtrack masterpiece is a fantastic exploration of chanson, samba, flamenco, space pop, and European folk. Although diverse, the sound is unified by a light-footed sense of humor. A standout is the title track (below). I love the whispered vocals on this one. Enjoy!
