Barney Wilen & Alain Jean-Marie - Montréal Duets - Limited Gatefold LP 180 Gram

 

Limited Gatefold 180-gram LP 

Elemental Music presents a never before heard duo performance by the great French saxophonist, Barney Wilen and the exquisite pianist, Alain Jean-Marie, in pristine sound quality!! All tracks previously unissued. Includes special essays by famed jazz writers Pascal Anquetil (Jazz Magazine) & Brian Morton (Penguin guide to Jazz).

“The alchemy of a duo cannot be decreed. It can be verified by the heat of this exchange. The Montreal concert is living proof. With these two musicians, jazz is not a matter of tempo or repertoire, of structures or the number of notes played in each bar. It is above all a matter of breathing, of the punctuation of each phrase, of the courtesy toward silence, a matter of music itself.” Pascal Anquetil (December 2019).

“Wilen’s preferred piano partner, for much of his later career, was the Martinique-born Alain Jean-Marie. He appears on both La Note Bleue and Wild Dogs of the Ruwenzori, but the duo’s Montréal appearance in 1993 is a nice way to study their chemistry at some length.” Brian Morton (December 2019).
