(Aime` Barelli - The Kenton/Ellington influence hit big-time)

Aime` Barelli was one of the great trumpeters to come out of the early French Jazz scene. He was part of the ensemble Jazz de Paris in the 1930s and 40s, playing alongside the likes of Alix Combelle, Hubert Rostaing and many of the other pioneering figures in France at the time.

After the war he formed a big band and got into the styles of Progressive Jazz along the lines of Stan Kenton, Boyd Raeburn, Claude Thornhill and Duke Ellington. In the 1950s he continued his wide appeal throughout France and Europe recording a number of albums for the Pathe` label as well as frequent tours through the continent.

This track, Je Ne Sais Pas is from 1954, when the band was at its most popular. Rock n' Roll was just around the corner, but for the moment Aime` Barreli and his orchestra said everything that needed to be said.

And then some.
