Du 26 novembre au 9 décembre 1956, le Modern Jazz Quartet joue tous les soirs au Club Saint-Germain. John Lewis connaît bien Paris. Lors d'un précédent séjour il s'est lié d'amitié avec Sacha Distel, un excellent guitariste inspiré comme tant d'autres par Jimmy Raney. L'oncle de Sacha, le chef d'orchestre Ray Ventura, possède les disques Versailles, d'où l'idée d'un album réunissant le MJQ et Sacha Distel. Un projet abandonné sous cette forme pour des raisons contractuelles. L'enregistrement a lieu les 4 et 7 décembre mais avec deux sections rythmiques et la présence de Barney Wilen au ténor. Percy Heath et Kenny Clarke couvrent la première séance. Pierre Michelot et Connie Kay assurent la deuxième. Afternoon In Paris n'est en rien comparable à une œuvre du MJQ. Il s'agit d'une rencontre informelle de musiciens qui s'apprécient et conversent avec le plus grand naturel. La musique n'en est que plus chaleureuse. --Pierre de Chocqueuse

It was in Paris that John Lewis co-led this 1956 date with Sacha Distel , a French guitarist who never became well-known in the U.S. but commanded a lot of respect in French jazz circles. The same can be said about the other French players employed on Afternoon in Paris -- neither tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen nor bassist Pierre Michelot were huge names in the U.S., although both were well-known in European jazz circles. With Lewis on piano, Distel on guitar, Wilen on tenor, Michelot or Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke or Connie Kay on drums, the part-American, part-French group of improvisers provides an above-average bop album that ranges from "Willow Weep for Me," "All The Things You Are," and "I Cover the Waterfront" to Milt Jackson 's "Bags' Groove" and Lewis' title song. The big-toned Wilen was only 19 when Afternoon in Paris was recorded, but as his lyrical yet hard-swinging solos demonstrate, he matured quickly as a saxman. It should be noted that all of the Americans on this album had been members of the Modern Jazz Quartet ; the only MJQ member who isn't on board is vibist Jackson . Originally released by Atlantic, Afternoon in Paris was finally reissued on CD in 1999 after being out of print for many years. -- Alex Henderson

Miles Davis with Barney Wilen -- Amsterdam Concert . . . CD . . . $11.99
Lonehill (Spain), 1957 Condition: New Copy
A lost Miles Davis concert -- recorded in 1957, with many of the same players he used for his classic soundtrack to the French film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud! The group's a quintet with French players Barney Wilen on tenor, Rene Utreger on piano, and Pierre Michelot on bass -- grooving with help from Kenny Clarke on drums -- and tracks are longish and include many late 50s jazz standards -- like "Bag's Groove", "Four", "Walkin", "Round Midnight", and "Lady Bird". Barney Wilen's young tone is razor sharp at this point -- and makes for a great counterpoint to the sweeter horn of Miles, coming together with the same magic they shared in their wonderful soundtrack work together. There's a bit of crackle in the recording quality, but the concert's well worth seeking out!

 

 
OBJECT OF THIS AUCTION: Genuine master tape (reel) of the Amsterdam Concert on December 8th 1957.Featuring Miles Davis (tp), Barney Wilen (ts), René Urtreger (p), Pierre Michelot (b) and Kenny Clarke (d). Recorded and broadcasted by VARA Radio in Holland. The tape starts with an announcement in Dutch: “VARA radio recorded this concert on December 8th 1957. it contains sufficient exiting music to put together an historical 1 hour program…” 01. Woody ‘n’ You 5:03 - 02. Bags Groove 7:00 - 03. What’s New 3:38 - 04. But Not For Me 6:49 - 05. A Night In Tunisia 7:15 - 06. Four 4:28 - 07. Walkin’ 6:34 - 08. Well You Needn’t 5:26 - 09. Round About Midnight 5:33 - 10. Lady Bird 5:30 - THE WINNING BIDDER WILL RECEIVE THIS MASTER TAPE (REEL) AND A COPY OF THE DIGITAL TRANSFER ON A DVD The reel is in excellent condition and the sound quality is very good. Please refer to the transfer specialist’s technical information: “The tape in question was a 10.5 inch reel of 1/4" Agfa tape, purportedly recorded in Amsterdam on the 8th of December, 1957. The recording was done in mono at 7.5 inches per second. As there were no alignment tones on the tape, I utilized a standard MRL tape at 7.5 IPS to set the playback equalization. The playback machine was an Otari MX-5050BII. Normally, in the case of a mono tape such as this one, I would use the better sounding output (left or right) from the Otari. But for some reason, in this case the sound was always superior when I mixed the two outputs together (accomplished by busing within ProTools). The result was always fuller and less "hollow" than that of either channel on it's own. The phasing sound evident in the cymbals was apparent in the individual channels and no worse when the channels were combined, which leads me to think that this anomaly was introduced at the time of the original recording or if and when a copy was made. The converter was a Digidesign 192 set up for 24 bit/192kHz. The file format was BWF. The nominal reference level (and I say nominal because the playback level of the Otari was set "by eye") was -14dbFS. The tape was played in one pass into ProTools and the result was a single 1.97GB Broadcast File. This file was subsequently exported as a 16 bit/44.1kHz AIFF file and burned with IDs as a reference CD-A.” IMPORTANT UPDATE: Q: I found your annoncement while making a dicographic research about Barney Wilen on the net. I was his french manager between 1985 and 1996, and consequently very close from him those years. The story of this tape (and his different official or bootleg editions) remains full of mistery for the jazzfans. And of course - though kwowing that your will certainly not answer this question - I wonder who you are and how this tape is now in your hands ? What is surprising and very moving for me is that, being of course very familiar with Barney Wilen's handwriting, I am almost 100% sure that the liner notes appearing on the tape cover were written by Barney himself. Did you had any grapholigic expert evaluation on that point ? I'm sure such an evaluation could increase the value of this rare item. I'm unfortunately not in position to buy it myself, but if you have any other Barney Wilen items (like LPs, posters, etc..), please keep me informed. Sep-28-05 A: Thank you very much for this most informative question. You are not wrong by assuming that I prefer to keep your first question unanswered. All I can say is that this tape was given to me by Barney Wilen himself and that I therefore have all the reasons to believe that it is an original. Concerning Mr. Wilen's handwriting on the cover of the tape: I did not ask for a graphologist's expertise simply because I assumed that it was his.

Donald Byrd + Barney Wilen – Jazz in camera

door René Steenhorst
JAZZ -
Op 4 februari 2013 overleed de Amerikaanse hardbop-trompettist Donald Byrd (80) na een imposante carrière. Die begon in de jaren 50 van de vorige eeuw als vervanger van Clifford Brown bij Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.

Toeval? Enkele weken vóór zijn dood verschenen verloren gewaande opnamen van Byrd met de Franse tenorsaxofonist Barney Wilen. Het ging om de niet-voltooide soundtrack van een nimmer afgeronde film van Sandro Bocota.
De film over Parijs als centrum van de internationale jazz werd nooit uitgebracht. Daarmee verdween in 1958 de muziek van Byrd en Wilen onder het stof. Nu dat is weggeblazen, blijft een aardig document over. Maar niet meer dan dat…

In 1959, (December 18th, a Friday) the Theatre des Champs-Elysees was the scene of a concert where the audience might have thought they were being taken for a ride. For a start, the programme turned out to be quite different from the one announced: the list of musicians was correct, but the actual existence of "Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers Big Band" was merely wishful thinking...and as for the "new compositions and original arrangements by Raymond Fol, Jack Marray (alias Duke Jordan), Lee Morgan, Martial Solal and Barney Wilen", which the ghost band was scheduled to perform, it seems that not a single note had ever been scored...

The initial project supposed that a number of American musicians in Paris at the time would gracefully accept the invitation to join Art Blakey's group. Most of them probably had better things to do, even if only for an evening, than link their destiny to that of the drummer, who'd become an idol since his triumph at the Olympia theatre the year before, not to mention his gigs at the Club St. Germain.

Only Bud Powell climbed onstage at the Champs-Elysees Theatre, and then only after a series of incidents worthy of burlesque. In his memoirs, Francis Paudras relates that he hadn't known that Powell was on the bill, and was delighted when he succeeded in convincing Bud to come to the concert with him. The pianist had accepted, of course (Bud hadn't said a word to him, and needed little persuasion...). When Art Blakey announced "Ladies and Gentlemen, we have the singular honor of the presence in this theater of the great pianist Bud Powell", Francis Paudras was dumbstruck at what he thought was Art Blakey's second sight, and immediately tried to persuade Bud to get up from the seat into which he was sinking further and further. As if he wanted the earth to swallow him up. Finally, with the help of some front-row spectators, Bud Powell was pulled onstage, minus (thankfully!) the beret and greatcoat he'd stubbornly insisted on keeping.

Surrounded by Lee Morgan, Barney Wilen and Wayne Shorter, and sustained by the bass of Jimmy Merritt and Blakey's drums, Bud performed two of his most beautiful pieces, Dance of the Infidels and Bouncing with Bud. And he played them in a way that finally did away with the public's initial disappointment, already greatly attenuated by the contributions of Martial Solal, and trumpeter Roger Guerin.

There was only one other guest next to Bud, Barney Wilen, who'd just turned 20. For the occasion, he's chosen an alto over the tenor, preferring the instrument of his debuts to the tenor with which he'd built an enviable reputation. He showed himself to be totally worthy of it, even if he'd practically stopped playing the alto by then. The midget and A night in Tunisia come from the concert's second half, where the Jazz Messengers played alone. The later tune, taken at an infernal tempo, allows us to understand just why Blakey and his Messengers were so popular; and also how it was possible for them to create the demand for a five-week long tour of Europe, a tour whose epicenter remained Paris.
