When British producer Harold Davison thought of rivalling the American “Jazz At The Philharmonic” (JATP) formula of the great jazz impresario Norman Granz, he invented “Jazz from Carnegie Hall”. It was short-lived, but given the talent of the musicians onstage it had no cause to be jealous. This concert was recorded on October 1, 1958, and the tracks here are the only ones to survive from that session. This is their first-ever release, and they feature the cream of the crop in the late Fifties: the Golden Age of jazz in Paris. Patrick FRÉMEAUX


The Live in Paris collection by Michel Brillié allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colours of the period.
