✨✧ Miles Davis & Michel LegrandDingo ... CD
Warner, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

Miles DavisFacets No 1 ... LP
CBS, 1956/1958/1962. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Import collection of some more obscure Miles moments from the late 50s Columbia years! There's 4 tracks recorded with the orchestra of Michel Legrand – and players that include Coltrane, Phil Woods, Jerome Richardson, and Bill Evans: "Jitterbug Waltz", "Round Midnight", "Wild Man Blues", and "Django". 2 tracks from a recording by the Brass Ensemble Of The Jazz & Classical Music Society, one led by John Lewis, the other by Gunther Schuller, are surprisingly wonderful – very much in the mode of Miles' work with Gil Evans, with a similar glistening sound on Miles' trumpet, and warm chromatic washes of sound underneath to provide the perfect soloing vehicle. And there are 4 numbers, a pair each from the Coltrane/Garland incarnation of the quintet, "Sweet Sue" & "Budo", and a transitional sextet from 1962, "Devil May Care" & "Blue Xmas".

Universal (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool collection of film noir soundtrack material – but one that's very different than some of the American packages on the market! This gem focuses on French crime films of the late 50s and early 60s – which includes some of the more inventive directors of the French New Wave, as well as overseas filmmakers who were trying out their own variations on American films – often with results that were even more modern and striking! The music was a huge part of these movies – often taking crime jazz modes from the US, and doing them even better – sometimes working with orchestrations, but in ways that were as stark and moody as the images on the screen. The set's a great overview of this generation – with tracks from 16 films that include Un Temoin Dans La Ville, Les Cinq Dernieres Minutes, Deux Hommes Dans Manhattan, Razzia Sur La Chnouf, Touchez Pas Au Grisbi, Compartiment Tueurs, Les Ennemis, and others – with music by Michel Magne, Jimmy Smith, Art Blakey, Jean Wiener Trio, Christian Chevallier, Michel Legrand, Georges Delerue, Marc Lanjean, Barney Wilen, Miles Davis, Martial Solal, and Eric Demarsan.
