description

Black vinyl in deluxe tip on sleeve, numbered. Limited to 300 copies.Sdban Records is proud and grateful to be able to release these outstanding compositions for the first time on vinyl, remastered from the original tape.

Belgian composer, arranger, pianist and keyboardist Koen De Bruyne (1946-1977), brother of celebrated singer and songwriter Kris De Bruyne, had his own - unfortunately short - stint in the field of pop, jazz, fusion and funk in the 1970ies. He rose to the scene as a wanted session and live musician for local heroes such as Johan Verminnen, Will Tura, Ferre Grignard, Mad Unity, Black Blood and his brother Kris. In 1974, after some years in the trade, Koen De Bruyne debuted as a solo artist. The inspired epic 'Here Comes The Crazy Man!' undeniably proves he was much more than a gifted 'hired gun'. He gathered a fabulous line-up for the recording sessions, featuring three members of the legendary Placebo (Marc Moulin's jazz/funk outfit). Recorded in the renowned Brussels Madeleine studios with some of the most prolific and inventive of his contemporaries, HCTCM! is a truly exceptional and imaginative record and has gained the status of sought after cult classic decades after its release. Koen De Bruyne's only real album to have seen the daylight is a rare Belgian gem, one that stands the test of time and is waiting to be rediscovered by new generations of listeners.

During our research for the reissue of HCTCM! in 2015, we were lucky enough to get in touch with Koen's brother Kris De Bruyne, one of Belgium's most influential singer songwriters. Kris dug up quite a bit of unreleased treasures from the family vaults. One of the tapes included these 4 majestic solo piano improvisations. One of the tracks has posthumously been included on Kris' album Ballerina's (the album Koen was producing when he passed away), the other three had vanished ever since. We are proud and grateful to be able to release these outstanding compositions for the first tim
