1957 Miles Davis in Amsterdam Featuring Barney Wilen

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!

Date de première sortie 4 décembre 1956
CD audio (21 septembre 1999)

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

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
