Miles Davis & Michel LegrandDingo ... CD
Warner, 1990. Used .... $3.99
A beautiful later album from Miles Davis – and a tremendous collaboration with composer Michel Legrand, in a set that returns Miles to the French soundtrack tradition he first started back in the late 50s! Some of the tracks here are quite spare – the kind of moody, ethereal solo moments that Miles still does better than most folks at this point in time – and other numbers feature fuller musical backings that echo some of the older Legrand soundtrack flair, but which come off with a slightly more contemporary approach too. Chuck Findley also handles some of the trumpet solos on the album – so all the musings here are not Miles' alone – and titles include "The Departure", "The Arrival", "The Dream", "Paris Walking I", "Going Home", "The Jam Session", and "Club Entrance".

VariousJazz In Paris Deluxe Edition Vol 1 – Champs-Elysees (3CD box set plus book) ... CD
Universal (France), 1930s/1940s/1950s/1970s. Used .... $34.99
A lovely assortment of tunes from the Jazz In Paris CD series – packaged here as a lavish 3CD set, along with a beautiful booklet of images, vintage photographs, and writings in both French and English! The set's like a time machine back into the glory days of the early Paris jazz scene – and features recordings from the 30s through the 70s – many of which have been issued in the Jazz In Paris series, but a few of which seem to be showing up here for the first time. The booklet alone is worth the price of the package, as it's especially beautifully done – but the set also features 3CDs of music, a total of 48 tracks that include "Trombones A Tout Faire" by Michel Legrand, "The Man I Love" by Jack Dieval, "Cherokee" by Raymond Fol, "Margie" by Sidney Bechet, "Mad Monk" by Tyree Glenn, "Swamp Mist" by Rex Stewart, "Sad Walk" by Chet Baker, "Tire Tire L'Aiguille" by Mary Lou Williams, "Vega Blues" by Andre Ekyan, "Three Little Words" by Lester Young, "Meeting" by Rene Thomas, "Moment's Notice" by Slide Hampton, "Bag's Groove" by Eddie Louiss, "Florence Sur Champs Elysees" by Miles Davis, and "Blue Lester" by Maurice Vander.

VariousNouvelle Vague – Musiques Et Chansons De Films (3CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD .... $22.99
The music of the French New Wave – brought out beautifully in an overstuffed 3CD set! The late 50s shift in French cinema is arguably one of the most important film moments in the 20th century – and although the movies are best remembered for their directors, stars, and striking images – most of the films also had some pretty amazing music as well! In fact, we've always felt that the music was integral to the Nouvelle Vague – from famous jazz scores, to lovely lyrical passages, to bold orchestral arrangements that also ended up having a huge impact on wider European music as well. This package is the first we've ever seen to really dig deep into the New Wave – and it brings together 80 tracks from dozens of films – a really wide variety of music, provided by artists who include Michel Legrand, Georges Delerue, Paul Misraki, Pierre Jansen, Miles Davis, Maurice Jarre, Jean Constantin, Martial Solal, Michel Magne, Antoine Duhamel, Alain Romans, and others – from movies that include 400 Blows, Jules & Jim, Hiroshima Mon Amour, Les Bonnes Femmes, Une Femme Est Une Femme, Breathless, Weekend, Lola, Cleo De 5 A 7, Le Bonheur, Alphaville, and many others! Some films are represented by a few tracks, others by famous themes – and the package also features a booklet with notes in French and English too. CD
