Barney Wilen says he was convinced to become a musician by his mother’s friend, the poet Blaise Cendrars. As a teenager he started a youth jazz club in Nice, where he played often. He moved to Paris in the mid-’50s and worked with such American musicians as Bud Powell, Benny Golson, Miles Davis, and J.J. Johnson at the Club St. Germain. His emerging reputation received a boost in 1957 when he played with Davis on the soundtrack to the Louis Malle film “Lift to the Scaffold.” Two years later, he performed with Art Blakey and Thelonious Monk on the soundtrack to Roger Vadim’s “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” (1960). Wilen began working in a rock-influenced style during the ’60s, recording an album titled Dear Professor Leary in 1968. This release have been recorded in France for Japanese Venus Records.
