Originally released on Privilege, a sub-label of Polydor, this soundtrack by free jazz saxophonist Marion Brown is almost impossible to find in its original pressing. Now more than fifty years later it is finally reissued, to the delight of free jazz enthusiasts and film music collectors.
By 1967, Brown, then aged 36, already had a very successful career in the United States, appearing on John Coltrane's Ascension, Archie Shepp's Fire Music, performing with Sun Ra and Pharoah Sanders and recorded several records under his name for renowned avant-gade jazz label ESP Disk.
That year, he however decided to move to Europe where he met with German saxophonist and vibraphonist Gunter Hamphel. Accompanied by Steve McCall (drums and percussions), Barre Phillips (double bass), Alain Corneau (Cow bells) and Ambrose Jackson (trumpet), they recorded in 1969 in the legendary Parisian studio Davout, the soundtrack of the movie by Marcel Camus entitled Le Temps Fou. This film, which starred Nino Ferrer, was released in 1970 under the title "Un été sauvage" and unfortunately it did not make history of cinema. Fallen into oblivion, only his two original soundtracks (there is also a 7'' with titles composed by Richard de Bordeaux and Daniel Beretta) are spreading the word.
