- Tele music
Established in the late 1960s, Paris based Tele music may not be as famous as the bigger French production library companies like Montparnasse 2000 or Chappell, but it was equally good when it comes to funky library releases. Contrebasses from 1970 was a concept album composed by well known session musicians Guy Pedersen and Raymond Guiot. The musical scenery is built around the bass sound but there’s of course other instruments involved too than the double bass of Guy Pedersen - drums and percussion played by André Arpino and flute, piano and harpsichord played by Raymond Guiot.
Music in Contrebasses is pretty much what it should be when it comes to a library release. Quite wide variety of styles from downtempo drama to uptempo funky beat. There’s three tracks that go over the others. Midtempo groovers “Indian pop bass” and “Les copains de la basse” and uptempo “Bass session”. Contrebasses is definitely one of funky ones among those countless French library records that were released.
