Wow!  A gambit of big band sounds on this cd, but the cut Eugipelliv gives you a "Dragent-like jazz crime theme" (or at least it could pass for that) as well....bongos included!  Here is a sample:

With a nod to Kind of Blue and Plugged Nickel, this just might be my favorite Miles album.

You would not have to work very hard to convince me!  But, have you seen the film?

Terrific film and the music is no less.



Great stuff. Miles playing with a bunch of French jazz musicians. He was quite the icon when lived in Paris.

It's been a labor of love looking for this one in the soundtrack bins, but finally spinning on my turntable. Great tv jazz here by Kenyon Hopkins and featuring Zoot Sims. I have noticed that all the ones I have seen on ebay have the Record Station sticker on them like mine. Love it when I find them with this.

recently, all from the aFR sales (evil, I tellya!):






(got into disc 2 of the Stafford last night, will continue listening last thing tonight again)

this one while commuting in the morning - wonderful album, John Jenkins' best, I guess, but it's the entire group and the wonderful Clifford Jordan that make it an entirely successful affair:




right now, back to them evil sales:


(Albert Mangelsdorff with Dusko Goykovich, Emil Mangelsdorff, Joki Freund, Hans Koller, Peter Trunk etc)

A must see, in my admittedly francophiled opinion. 8)

I'm a bit less enthralled by "L'Ascenseur" ... it's a stylish, very moody film, Jeanne Moreau is stunning as only she could be back then (beauté amère) and the music is a perfect fit ... but my favourite french movies (and they're amongs my favourite of all movies of course) are the more adventurous ones by JLG, Resnais etc. (still don't know much of Rivette's, and as I don't often watch movies at home, what with the great movie houses offering old stuff here, this will just have to wait until the next big Rivette series will happen ... last one was in the 90s when I was still too young to be into this or to understand, had I caught the films back then)

Now playing another one from the evil sales:

Recently I contracted an addiction to hires recordings.  I came across the http://www.soundliaison.com/ dutch label which only produces jazz recordings.  In their production, I fell in love with http://www.soundliaison.com/studio-showcase-series/3-bach-reflections-wav, a jazz pastiche of J-S Bach music.  Its awsome.  In the rest of their production (I bought everything) I like also http://www.soundliaison.com/studio-masters/1-after-silence-all.  Beautiful soothing music.

The same group that did the Bach jazz pastiche did one on Schubert.  I ordered the CD which is hard to find but did not get it yet...

Teddy Edwards - one of the unsung heros of jazz ... the first to ever record a true bop solo on tenor, but then he went missing for way too long until he returned (and that, more or less, sums up the story of his life as a musician, alas ... at one point he also toured with Tom Waits, who sang two songs on one of his albums, as a guest) - wonderful musician:

I do moody.  But quite agree it's no match for most of Godard and Resnais. Or Clément.  BTW:  do you like L'Atalante? Prob. watched it more than any other French film, over and over and over. ma petite obsession.

You bet! I love "L'Atalante", an amazing film! If we're talking older french directors, I also very, very much love Jean Renoir ... and of course Bresson, too!

"Soul Station" is one of my all-time favourites!
