Description: A vinyl reissue of a VERY RARE European jazz album! Only 1,000 copies pressed!

In Japan, there is a huge demand by ardent jazz fans for very rare jazz LPs made in Europe. International Jazz Meeting by Italian guitarist Franco Cerri --who is still performing, by the way, at age 82--, is one of these super-rare albums. The original LP released by Columbia Records Italy would command a huge sum in the used market, if one is ever offered for sale.

Now, thanks to the people at DIW Records, we have a chance to listen to this very well-recorded bebop sides in its analog glory. Appearing alongside Cerri, one of the most celebrated jazz guitarists in Europe, include legendary French saxophonist Barney Wilen (who mostly plays soprano saxophone on this date) and Flavio Ambrosetti (alto sax) and pianist George Gruntz from Switzerland. The music they make can be best described as happy, swinging jazz.

This is a true collector's item and a fabulous record for vinyl fans! Order your copy before they are gone! There are only 1,000 copies to go around in the entire world!

Recorded in 1961. Originally released by Columbia Records Italy as Columbia 33QPX8018. The 200g heavy vinyl was pressed in Italy, and the jacket (a faithful reproduction of the original) was made in Japan. This Japanese reissue was licensed by Franco Cerri.

Eje Thelin (1939 -90) was recently chosen by the commitee of the French "Django d'Or" prize as "LEGEND OF JAZZ", and a concert was held in his honour at Nalen in Stockholm. Swedish trombonist Eje Thelin and French tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen were two of the top European jazz musicians for several decades before their deaths in the 1990s. They first joined forces briefly in Thelin's quartet in 1963. Based in bop and earlier forms of jazz, Thelin and Wilen were open to freer improvising and music from other countries. In 1966 they joined forces, and two sessions are included on the 1966 With Barney Wilen CD. The first one features a quintet with pianist Lars Sjösten, bassist Erik Lundborg, and drummer Rune Carlsson that is joined by eight brass, bass clarinet, and flute for four inventive Thelin originals. While those performances are excellent, it is the other five numbers (which include second versions of a pair of Thelin's tunes plus "It Could Happen to You" and "Dear Old Stockholm") that are of greatest interest. The playing by the pianoless quartet (comprised of Thelin, Wilen, Carlsson, and bassist Palle Danielsson) is looser and freer with plenty of fireworks occurring in the often intuitive music. This set is easily recommended, particularly to listeners who are not aware that talented Europeans had been playing creative jazz for decades

This "Concert Hall" SJS 1346 is one of the more rare LP issues on the "label", in Europe at the end of the sixties. This is "Free Jazz", a realisation of the producer Jacques Bisceglia, who was with Georgakarakos at the origin of the "BYG" records. On this "Free Jazz n° 1" (we never had the n° 2), Jacques Bisceglia realised a compilation of recordings in Paris between 1966 until 1969. "Touareg", by Archie Shepp, Malachi Favors and Philly Joe Jones, (16/08/69), "My You", by Jimmy Lyons, with Alan Silva, Andrew Cyrille and Lester Bowie (15/08/69), "Ramblin" by Paul Bley with Mark Levinson and Barry Altschul (1/07/66, Rome), "Invisible Blues", by Sunny Murray, with Byard Lancaster, Kenneth Terroade and Malachi Favors, and "Ponte Io" by Grachan Moncur III, with Fernando Martins, Beb Guérin and Nelson Serra de Castro.

A phantom Wilen album!
"FREE JAZZ" (MOULOUDJI EM-13 507) - A phantom Wilen album!


By “BC”

A few years ago, I was assembling a collection of recordings deemed to be important in the history and development of French jazz.


One album was Adda/In Situ 590039 entitled '1965, François Tusques, Free Jazz'. On reading the titles and booklet notes,

I realised that this CD was a reissue of the legendary Mouloudji 'Free Jazz' album - with the added bonus of 2 previously unreleased tracks.

The recording date was given as 26th October 1965 and the release date of the original Mouloudji 'Free Jazz' LP as 1966.

The proximity of recording and release dates seemed sensible but, as a keen Barney Wilen fan, I remembered that in all Wilen discographies known to me (Lord, Warren, Genty, Loustal), the release date was, invariably, given as 1975 - nearly a decade later!

My next move was to look for other Mouloudji LPs and to look for any correlation between album number and release date.

EM-13 513 "Marie Noel" by Christiane Perrin had a known 1966 provenance whilst EM-13 517 "Le Nouveau Jazz" by François Tusques/Barney Wilen was known to date from 1967.

Logically, therefore, it would follow that EM-13 507 "Free Jazz" appeared before either of the previous albums!

This inference is very strong circumstantial evidence - but it is not definitive proof.

However, the real clincher is the rear sleeve of "Le Nouveau Jazz" LP which features an advertisement for the "Free Jazz" LP (see the Loustal website) and provides incontrovertible proof that the "Free Jazz" album was available in 1967.

Although accepted and listed as a Wilen item (in all discographies), I have long believed that "Free Jazz" does not feature Wilen.

I have listened long and hard to the In Situ CD and can find no aural evidence to support Wilen's presence on any track.

The In Situ listing is:- Vitet (trumpet), Jeanneau (sax/flute), Portal (bs clt), Saudrais (percussion), Guerin (bass) & Tusques (pno).

Two reedmen are already present in the sextet - why would Tusques wish to engage Wilen as a third?


The CD booklet carries photographs of the front & rear sleeves of the original Mouloudji album, together with extensive notes on

the recording artists. Unsurprisingly, Wilen is not mentioned on any of the 16 pages - nor on the CD inlay.

On the www.organissimo.org website there is a post quoting Tusques as saying that Wilen was not present at the session.

Again, the real clincher is the rear sleeve of the "Free Jazz" LP itself, which lists the sextet (as above) - with no mention of Wilen.

So there you have it, "Free Jazz" dates from 1966 and it does not feature Barney Wilen - but it is still a cracking LP!


 



My comments refer to the Mouloudji EM-13507 "Free Jazz" album.

It is my opinion that every known published Wilen discography has got this one wrong!
I can only think that the errors must go back a very long way - but how & why did they occur and why have they never been corrected? I have not seen the original Mouloudji disc (nor do I know of anyone else who has - it has almost mythical status)!
This website lists to the disc - but provides no information or illustrations.
Instead, your site concentrates on the Concert Hall disc - a reissue of the Mouloudji (see below).

ERROR 1:- DATE. This disc dates from 1965 not 1975.
My evidence:-
(a) The other rare Mouloudji (EM-133517 "Le Nouveau Jazz") originally appeared as EM-13 517 and dates from 1967 which is correct, as per your discography.
How EM-13 517 became EM-133517 is unknown - possibly the record carried one number whilst the sleeve carried the other?
[EM-13 513 "Marie Noel" by Christiane Perrin has a known 1966 recording date - suggesting that Mouloudji's numbering sequence was strictly chronological.]

(b) So, if we write EM-13507 as EM-13 507 we can infer that, from the numerical sequence, that it was issued before "Le Nouveau Jazz" i.e. in 1965/6.

(c) The Concert Hall "Free Jazz" LP (SJS 1346), issued in 1969, is a track-by-track reissue of the Mouloudji of the same title.
Very obviously, the 1969 release date makes a recording date of 1975 impossible!

(d) A French CD [In Situ 590039 "1965, Francois Tusques, Free Jazz"] issued in 1990, was the initial release of the complete Paris concert from October 26th 1965.
The CD inlay cites the 1966 Mouloudji as the very first issue of this concert - but only 3, of the 6 tracks recorded, ever appeared on the LP.

ERROR 2:- PERSONNEL. Take a deep breath - I do not believe that Wilen appears on the "Free Jazz" LP (Mouloudji or Concert Hall) at all!
My evidence:-
(a) I own the In Situ CD and have listened extremely carefully to every track. I can find no aural evidence to support Wilen's presence on the session.
His name appears neither in the personnel listing nor in the CD booklet notes.

(b) Logically, Francois Tusques (the session leader) is most unlikely to have used three reedmen in a sextet assembled for a one-off concert!
(We also need to remember that Wilen had not recorded at all since 1962.)
The published line-up for the 1965 Paris concert was Vitet (tpt), Jeanneau (sax/fl), Portal (bs clt), Saudrais (perc), Guerin (bs) and Tusques (pno).

(c) Francois Tusques, himself, is quoted as saying that Wilen was NOT present at the Paris concert at the Comedie des Champs-Elysees, Paris on 26/10/65.
See post #85 on the website page www.organissimo.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=4704&st=75
This particular topic, devoted to Wilen's recordings, runs to 10 pages and some 141 posts.

The pics look most interesting but I am not sure exactly what I am looking at.
The extreme bottom right hand corner pic does look like Wilen, I will admit.
Are these pics of an actual Mouloudji EM-13507 LP?
Why the obvious folds on the right hand pic - was this sheet an insert with the LP since it is much smaller than either the LP itself or its sleeve?

My final caveat is that Wilen was the only 'big name' on the French 'free-jazz' scene at that time and may have been used to promote the LP - even if he was not actually present on the session!
{Mouloudji was a very small label struggling to survive and make sales at all costs].
Wilen was known to be in his 'experimental' and 'free-jazz' phase at around 1965 and would certainly have been a far greater sales "pull" than the relatively unknown Tusques (session leader).

I would be particularly interested in the printed text on the 3rd pic and also a large size image of the record label itself (which does not look like any Mouloudji which I have previously seen).

The reverse of the sleeve should also provide information regarding recording / release dates - I presume that you do not have a copy?

Barney Wilen : La Note Bleue (IDA), 1986. Le plus beau son en ténor du jazz français. L'album du retour : après sa longue absence, Barney renoue avec le be-bop et l'univers de Lester Young. L'inspiration est intacte, ses dialogues avec le guitariste Philippe Petit décontractés, et sa version de Besame Mucho est l'une des plus épatantes qu'il m'ait été donné d'entendre. Et puis, en même temps que ce compact (augmenté de trois titres par rapport au LP), procurez-vous la bande dessinée de Loustal et Paringaux : Barney et la Note bleue. C'est un véritable florilège de peintures en miniature, de petites histoires tristes et romantiques où les personnages vivent leur destin comme une malédiction, c'est plein de clichés et de rêves que le jazz traîne avec lui depuis sa naissance, et c'est beau comme un vieux film de Bogart.

Marie Möör : Prends-moi, prends-moi /Beau masque, French 7" on Polydor 887 363-7 (1988). Mary is the sexy lolita singer, the band is : Michel Moers & Jerome Braque (synth), Michel Arich (guitar) and Barney Wilen (saxophones). Wilen wrote the 2 tracks, arranged and produced. Side one is calypso synth ending with a great saxophone solo, side two is mambo (or rumba ?) new wave synth ending in saxophone. I will add that even if I think jazz singles are not really sought-after, in general, you single no chance to hear the first side nowhere else, and not buying it means you will not get the complete Barney discography, until it is reisued. (side 2 has been released on cd in 1992, but maybe it's a re-recording, I don't know). The single is ultra-rare.

MARIE MOOR : Prends moi prends moi/Beau masque, French original 7" on Polydor 887 363-7 POL 102. This is a copy that left unsold for peanuts some years ago on eBay. I add that jerome braque was into braque probably, and michel moers in telex, a belgian band. At least Telex is a bit collectable.And Marie Moor has done some texts with french pop singer Christophe, who is collectable . You can check the loustal nl site on barney wilen who has took my previous scans and text on this record. Nothing against this, and my point of view on jazz singles has not changed. Cover very good, record looks excellent, will listen to it again these days and tell you.

"Recorded at his home in Paris from February to April 1998, Sands is Steve Lacy's most personal and remarkable solo document, and explores a wide variety of musical and dramatic subjects. Portraits of close friends Barney Wilen and William Burroughs; collaborations with the texts of Allen Ginsberg and Samuel Beckett; and of course his own peculiar take on identity and Jewish heritage, which he characterizes in his most recent composition 'Jewgitive'. The music of Lacy, like Judaism itself, is a praxis, a question, a floating anxiety, and Sands is one of Lacy's most poignant and intense recordings."

ASIN: B000004790 

Personnel: Miles Davis (trumpet); Michel Legrand (conductor); Charlie Parker, Phil Woods (alto saxophone); John Coltrane, Barney Wilen (tenor saxophone); Jerome Richardson (baritone saxophone, bass clarinet); Herbie Mann (flute); Betty Glamann (harp); Eddie Costa (vibraphone); Bill Evans, Rene Urtreger, Walter Bishop Jr (piano); Barry Gailbraith (guitar); Paul Chambers, Pierre Michelot, Teddy Kotick (bass); Kenny Dennis, Kenny Clarke, Max Roach (drums).Recorded in New York, New York on January 17, 1951 and June 25, 1958; Paris, France on December 4 & 5, 1957. Includes liner notes by Max Harrison.It's difficult to determine what the governing theme of this collection is, other than the demostration of Miles' veratility in different situations. The tunes come from sessions dated 1951, 1957 and 1958, each with a radically different group of players. The 1951 sessions find the unstoppable Miles going toe to toe with Charlie Parker over the rhythmic underpinnings of Max Roach. Placed in the unenviable position of trading solos with Parker on Au Privave and K.C. Blues, Miles proves his mettle admirably. The Paris 1957 session finds Miles accompanied by Pierre Michelot and Kenny Clarke, among others, and the music produced ranks among the most atmospheric and understated of Miles' career (check out the serie L 'Assassinat De Carala).

nom d'artiste de Bernard Jean Wilen 
Musicien français (Nice, 1937 — Paris, 1996).
Il séjourne aux États-Unis de 1940 à 1946 et, dès son retour en France, étudie le saxophone ténor. En 1953, âgé de seize ans, il monte à Paris et côtoie sur la scène du Tabou les grands musiciens américains de passage comme Thelonious Monk. En 1957, il participe aux sessions d'enregistrement de la musique du film Ascenseur pour l'échafaud, orchestrée par Miles Davis. Il se produit également avec les vedettes du be-bop comme Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey et Bud Powell. Il fut un des premiers Européens invités au festival de Newport. Après une première éclipse en 1962, il réapparaît au milieu des années 1960 avec Dear Prof Leary (1968) en précurseur du free jazz européen, ouvert également à l'influence de la pop music, définissant ainsi les principes du free jazz-rock. En 1969, il part en Afrique pour un périple de deux ans qui lui inspire Moshi en 1972, album mêlant jazz et musiques africaines traditionnelles. Il disparaît à nouveau jusqu'à la fin des années 1970. En 1987 paraît la Note bleue, disque au succès mythique, sorti en même temps qu'une bande dessinée de Loustal et Paringaux inspirée de sa vie, et consacrant le retour au tout premier plan de ce musicien de niveau international.

RESUME :

La photographie est par essence l'art de l'instant, et Christian Rose réalise ici un exploit, celui de saisir le moment, ténu, de la rencontre entre deux musiciens de jazz. L'histoire du jazz est jalonnée de ces rencontres qui donnèrent à l'improvisation sa mythologie, Armstrong-Bechet, Armstrong-Ella, Parker-Dizzy, Duke-Coltrane, Miles-Wilen...

Dépendant, plus que toute autre musique, de l'alchimie entre instruments, de la magie du temps, de l'instant, de la rencontre, de la connivence, le jazz offrait un domaine incomparable à l'investigation du photographe.

Car cela fait près de quarante ans que Christian Rose arpente les scènes du jazz, des festivals aux clubs, des coulisses aux avant-scènes, avec l'opiniâtreté d'un entomologiste qui ne voudrait rien manquer dans l'observation de son territoire.

C'est dire si son témoignage photographique est riche, déroulant une véritable chronique de ces décennies à travers une galerie de portraits des acteurs principaux du jazz et de leurs rencontres.
