The Cinema Of Miles Davis (CD)
UK collection. The Cinema of Miles Davis showcases superior examples of the use of the great jazz trumpeter's music in film. This edition includes his first complete score, sultry and improvised, for Elevator To the Gallows - Louis Malle's directorial debut starring the eternal Jeanne Moreau - which came in late 1957, a decisive time for Miles; marking the ending of his hard-bop period and anticipating the modal phase that would culminate in A Kind of Blue. With Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and Monk, Davis' music was central to the aesthetic of the Beat Generation so it is unsurprising to find it featured in documentaries on the life and work of both Jack Kerouac and Lenny Bruce. These iconic men of words considered their art to be a form of jazz with the latter referring to his voice as his "Horn". During the nineties, the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar deployed powerful and ornate Gil Evans compositions, performed by Miles and inspired by flamenco, in High Heels and Flower of My Secret. Elsewhere, the incomparable Blue in Green appears in Sally Potter's passionate, Cold War meets the Sexual Revolution drama, Ginger & Rosa, while Miles' reading of the Eden Ahbez masterpiece Nature Boy, is heard under Mediterranean skies in Anthony Minghella's interpretation of Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley.
