DELUXE PACKAGING – Thick cardboard Fold Open Digi-Sleeves with inner sleeves

Louis Malle’s "Ascenseur pour l’échafaud" wasn’t the first film to use a jazz soundtrack or to feature jazz musicians, but it was the first to show an absolute integration of jazz music into a feature film whose story had nothing to do with jazz or even with the music itself. Miles Davis’ improvisations fit the dark atmosphere of the film perfectly.

The soundtrack, presented here in its entirety, was first issued in France as a 10” LP on Fontana 660.213MR. The three tracks that follow were added to the American 12” LP edition of the soundtrack, Jazz Track (Columbia CL-1268), and feature Miles Davis’ 1958 sextet, the same group that would tape the immortal "Kind of Blue" in 1959. A complete quartet session by
Miles has been added as a bonus.
