"Representing a more intimate and spontaneous side of Miles, the rerelease is a welcome event. Fans of the cool side of Miles will be especially interested ... but this recording, which was a landmark at the time, should be of equal interest to fans of soundtrack music, as it represents one of the few times that a true collaborative and improvisational approach was used. And only an artist as confident and focused as Miles could pull such strong performances out of a group that had played very little together; the album is a continuing testimony to Miles' strength as a leader."
- All About Jazz

Miles Davis recorded this soundtrack for Louis Malle's 1958 film Ascenseur pour l'échafaud in Paris in late 1957 while on tour in France. In one four-hour session, the music was almost entirely improvised by Davis and his band, who were given a basic plot summary and performed while key scenes from the film were projected for them in the studio. A repackaging of this album earned a Grammy nomination in 1960 for Best Jazz Performance, Solo or Small Group.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
