VINYL FORMAT. 1958 film noir by the great Louis Malle, starring Jeanne Moreau and Maurice Ronet. Not only was the film genre defining, but so was the soundtrack by Miles Davis, propelling the young player and composer forward into the type of modal jazz that would soon make history. Amazingly a 24-year- old Malle, who had not yet made a feature length film, but who was a huge jazz fan, intercepted Miles Davis at the airport and managed to convince him to make the music for the film. Miles Davis and his musicians, who included the Kenny Clarke on drums, as well as three French musicians, improvised this soundtrack in one night, from dusk to dawn, while watching the film and occasionally consulting with Malle. The film, which can be considered a precursor to the New Wave of French cinema won Malle the prestigious Louis Delluc prize and it can also be stated that the very spirit of jazz and the New Wave of French cinema are contained in this film and its soundtrack.
