PSYCHEDELIC(60s-70s) / JAZZ-FUNK
Cool library-styled French album from 1970.

Groovy flute by BERNARD WYSTRAËTE plus heavy bass, drums (by ANDRÉ CECCARELLI), violin, occasional fuzz-wah guitar and Urszula Dudziak-like scat vocals.
In 1970, the AFA label asked flautist Bernard Wystraëte to register a “pop” album after the worldwide impact of progressive bands like Aphrodite’s Child and Jethro Tull.
Bernard recruited some of his friends who were professional musicians and Structure was born. He wrote a collection of songs influenced by progressive rock, jazz and Brazilian music. The “Pop Music” album was recorded live in the studio to give a “live show” feel. It was released later that year housed in a superb psychedelic sleeve. The band even toured across France and several countries at the same time that Bernard and other Structure members started backing famous French singer Marie Laforêt live.
After the good reception given to the album, another label asked Bernard to record a Structure 45. “Dilatation” / “Scale” was released under a new line-up. Both tracks of this 45 are included as bonus tracks on the Digital Download version and the CD.
