Other Screenings

The completely improvised music that Miles Davis wrote-played-recorded for this film became a milestone, not only in the history of film soundtracks, but also in the history of jazz. A few months after recording the soundtrack, Davis released the masterpiece album KIND OF BLUE, which was recorded using the exact same improvised techniques, and became Davis' most important and influential work.
