  • French saxophonist BARNEY WILEN’s career was boosted in 1957 when he joined Miles Davis on the soundtrack of Louis Malle’s film noir classic Ascenseur pour l’échafaud. However, Wilen’s popularity slowly waned starting in the 1970s, even though he would produce lots of wonderful music in the intervening years.
  • The release of the LP La Note Bleue in 1987 marked a rebirth in his career. That legendary album followed the success of a Jacques de Loustal & Philippe Paringaux comic book partly inspired by his life, titled Barney et la Note Bleue, which put the saxophonist’s name back into the scene.
  • Recorded on September 27, 1989, at the Parisian jazz club Le Petit Opportun, the broadcast features Wilen offering fresh new interpretations of songs from La Note Bleue. It is issued here thanks to the collaboration of the INA (Institut National de l`Audiovisuel). Wilen is backed here by JACKY TERRASSON on piano, GILLES NATUREL on double-bass, and PETER GRITZ on drums.
