Barney Wilen's career took off in 1957. That year he won the Django Reinhardt Award and recorded the soundtrack to the film Elevator to the Scaffold with Miles Davis. In '59 he recorded the music for the film Les Liaisons Dangereuses with Thelonious Monk and Art Blakey, and then composed the music for the film Un témoin dans la ville directed by Edouard Molinaro.

For this nocturnal tour through Paris, Barney Wilen is surrounded by the musicians who have been accompanying him for several weeks at the Club Saint-Germain: Kenny Dorham, Duke Jordan, Paul Rovère and Kenny Clarke. The result is a most happy marriage, as the music seems to have been created for the image and the image for the music.
