This is the second of our "soundtrack" Jazz Features for the month of December. This time the legendary Miles Davis and his famous score for the French mystery film noir entitled "Elevator to the Gallows. Miles Davis is on trumpet with the great American ex-pat drummer Kenny Clarke and three wonderful French musicians.They are: tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen, Rene Urtreger on piano and Pierre Michelot on bass. The moods established by these pieces are incredible and Davis plays with a depth of feeling that even for him is rare. The music stands on it's own and is a very moving and emotional experience. Check it out tonight.
