  • Description

    Deluxe presentation with comprehensive 20-page booklet + 5 bonus tracks. Includes new specially prepared liner notes by Penguin Guide to Jazz writer Brian Morton and by Paris's prestigious Jazz Magazine.

    "A kind of mythology sprang up around the performances, which involved Miles Davis working without his regular group, and with just the exiled Kenny Clarke from home. Fans have pored over the recordings with more detailed attention than most soundtrack albums ever receive, treasuring such details as the little fleck of skin from the trumpeter's lip that changes the timbre of his instrument on one cue. The recording and the circumstances of its making fitted the idea of the jazz improviser as an existential loner, always on the outside of society, making beautiful or heroic gestures out of nothing." - Penguin Guide To Jazz

    "Beyond the music's fascinating minimalism is Miles' unique sound, which is both distant and close, and absolutely bewitching even 60 years later. "Miles' sound", with or without the mute, would become instantly recognizable. The dark and luminous notes of the celebrated, fabulous "Générique" are today inseparable from Jeanne Moreau's face, and from her nocturnal wandering through the streets of the French capital. This is cinematic jazz." - Jazz Magazine

    Description

    The album "Ascenseur pour l'echafaud" it's the original soundtrack, produced in 1957 by Miles Davis, from the film by Louis Malle with Barney Wilen on tenor saxophone, Rene Urtreger on piano, Pierre Michelot on double bass, Kenny Clarke on drums and Miles Davis on trumpet. The recording session, organized by Marcel Romano, took place the night of December 4 to 5, at the Poste Parisien studio. "Ascenseur pour l'echafaud" won the Louis-Delluc Prize in 1957; in Europe the name of Miles Davis was included on the film's poster, and the quality of his contribution was widely recognized and praised in the press, which further increased his fame.

    This release is part of the New Ermitage collection available from January 2024: 18 jazz and soul titles reissued on yellow vinyl with new codes and renewed graphics.
