Wow, brownie! I really wish I had such memories!

i can only say the same. i like Wilen a lot too. as well as Jaspar. i have the Tilt album, the Jazz in Paris and i don't know right now if something else. the bandini album was reissued in Japan some time ago. i remember when it was. now i remember an African album that was a soundtrack or had strong african influences, but i don't know its title nor when it was recorded.

Moshi - Saravah, 1972.

This thread has a lot of good recommendations, moreso than my pocketbook can afford.

Seem to be some inexpensive copies of Sanctuary and Talisman floating about on Amazon and elsewhere. I picked them both up but they haven't arrived yet.

They were reissued as a mid-priced CD a year or so ago. The first place I saw them was the Jazz Loft. They never did get around to "La Note Bleu", "French Ballads" or "Wild Dogs Of Ruwenzori" though. Of these 3, the only one I missed was "French Ballads". I found "Wild Dogs Of Ruwenzori" to be too "smooth" for my taste. Wilen does Kenny G? :)

Very cool, thanks! "Moshi Too" (Two?) sounds just as great! Wow! Seems after the debacle with their last attempt (with the release of "Le Jardin Aux Sentiers Qui Bifurquent") the heirs might have found someone else to collaborate with...

On the first link it says CD & LP, on the website it says CD & MP3... well, I guess I'll go for CD anyway, so I won't care what else they offer.

Thanks to the generous support of his son Patrick Wilen, we are currently digitizing over 200 tapes from the estate of French Jazzman Barney Wilen at Audiomoto studio Berlin.

Prepare yourself for an unknown Donald Byrd & Barney Wilen soundtrack, entitled “Jazz In Camera”, produced 1958 in Paris and recently found on stocked away acetate records - available early next year.

Barney recorded many tapes during his “African phase” (1969- 1971) and we will edit an alternate version of his famous “Moshi” album, consequently entitled “Moshi (Too)”.

i heard the stream of about half the album (on the german site simfy but i guess it's also available on other similar sites) and it made an excellent first impression (including some great playing by Donald Byrd)

Interesting... I just got a mail from amazon.fr moving back the expected release/delivery to March 31! Lame, will compare prices with other sources, I guess.

Oh well, just did... and I'll just wait and pay some euros less.
