Miles Davis/Barney Wilen - Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud/Un Temoin Dans La Ville on 180g Import LP
Two Original Soundtrack Albums!
Miles Davis' soundtrack for the 1958 Louis Malle film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud and Barney Wilen's soundtrack to the Edouard Molinaro 1958 film Un Temoin Dans La Ville collected together in one vinyl package courtesy of Vinyl Passion. With a romantic sound reminiscent of his early '50s Blue Note recordings Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud is a wonderfully reflective precursor to Davis' landmark release Kind Of Blue which was issued the following year. Wilen, who also played tenor saxophone on Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud, was still in his 20s when he composed the score to Un Temoin Dans La Ville, a melancholy 12-track affair featuring Kenny Dorham (trumpet), Kenny Clarke (drums) and Duke Jordan (piano).
