Soundtrack to the French film "L'Ascenseur pour l'échafaud"

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, rolls out an incredible line-up of collectible LPs created especially for Record Store Day's Back to Black Friday 2013.

The 1958 Jazz Track LP compilation is made up of two unrelated studio sessions. The first side is devoted to 10 songs composed by Miles Davis for the soundtrack to the French film "L'Ascenseuer pour l'Echafaud," with pianist René Urtreger, tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen, bassist Pierre Michelot, and drummer Kenny Clarke joining the trumpeter. 

The second side represents only a portion of the May 26, 1958, studio session with Bill Evans, John Coltrane, and Cannonball Adderley that has since been reissued in full on CD. The softly stated treatment of "On Green Dolphin Street," with Davis' muted trumpet, Evans' impeccable accompaniment, and Jimmy Cobb's tasteful brushwork is masterful, though Adderley and Coltrane quickly shatter that mood following their respective entrances. The waltz-time treatment of "Fran Dance" (Davis' recasting of "Put Your Little Foot Right Out") is fine, though the clear highlight of the record is the gorgeous arrangement of "Stella by Starlight," which Adderley sits out.
