Not only a major figure in the record industry and show business, Eddie Barclay also left his mark on the "people" pages of the tabloids: he was famous for the parties he hosted for socialites in Saint-Tropez, while his friendships with the stars made him a public legend. Yet few remember that Eddie Barclay was a precursor: he was one of the first in France to import jazz and rock'n'roll records from America. When he created his own label, Barclay Records, he brought in legendary music figures like Quincy Jones and Boris Vian, Frank Ténot or Daniel Filipacchi to work with him on the artistic side. Not many today know that Eddie Barclay was also a pianist, bandleader and jazz fan with a hundred of his own recordings to his name... Here Jean Baptiste Mersiol throws light on the forgotten history of this arranger, performer and producer with a 3 album anthology that deserves it's place in music history.
