Alain Jean Marie , Barney Wilen


Barney Wilen featuring Alain Jean Marie

A leading figure of French jazz, Sarney Wilen is making his first appearance at the Festival. The imposing saxophonist, famous for tense, syncopated playing of uncommon craftiness, will be accompanied by Alain Jean Marie from Martinique for a performance of music from their album Dreamtime. "For indulging in reverie, for those who will never get enough of Alain Jean Marie's feeling or Barney's mystery, Dreamtime is essential ..." And there's more where that came from: Wilen played alongside Miles Davis for the remarkable music from the film Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. Indeed, Wilen is one of the few French jazzmen of international stature. His smooth, velvety sound makes him one of the saxophonists most faithful to the spirit of Lester Young. As for master keyboard player Alain Jean Marie, it is said that he was like the young Bud Powell. His swing, his elegance and his fresh approach have made him the most versatile of accompanists, at ease with everyone from Bill Coleman to Archie Shepp. Wilen and Jean Marie: a dreamy combination.
