In 1957 Miles Davis went to France for a short tour and while there he recorded the soundtrack for the film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud. This CD contains the original LP of material plus 19 minutes of unreleased alternate versions. Better than many soundtracks, this music (which also features the tenor of Barney Wilen and pianist Rene Urtreger) does not really stand on its own without the film, so it's of mostly historical interest.
