Product Description

Product Description

Gathered together for the first time on this 5-CD boxset, with a sixty page booklet, are seven of the most essential 'Jazz on Film' recordings made in the French New Wave era between 1957 and 1962.

The set is Vol. 3 in the 'Jazz on Film' box set series, and is compiled and annotated by writer Selwyn Harris, producer of Volumes 1 and 2 of the 5-CD sets, 'Film Noir' and 'Beat, Square & Cool'. 'French New Wave' includes the Modern Jazz Quartet's 'No Sun in Venice', Miles Davis's 'Lift to the Scaffold', Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers' 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses' and 'Des Femmes Disparaissent', Martial Solal's 'Breathless', Barney Wilen's 'Un Temoin Dans La Ville' and Michel Legrand's 'Eva'.

The original albums have been remastered to a high quality by a specialist in the jazz field (as per the previous two volumes) and the set is completed with a 60-page deluxe colour booklet of in-depth essays on each film, written by Jazzwise's 'Jazz on Film' feature writer Selwyn Harris, with editorial consultancy by the esteemed author, critic and broadcaster Brian Priestley.

Review

'Brilliant 5-CD set...acclaimed soundtracks such as the Modern Jazz Quartet's No Sun In Venice and Miles Davis's Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud reappear here remastered...essential.' -- MOJO, (Fred Dellar), December 2013 * * * * *


'Third immaculately transferred and produced collection of jazz film music presented by jazz writer Selwyn Harris...the project's standards remain outrageously high...it's the expert curatorship and 60 pages of scholarly yet approachable notes that glues the whole together so well. Invaluable (again).' -- BBC Music Magazine, (Roger Thomas), December 2013 * * * * *


'The third in an epic series of jazz soundtrack boxes, and possibly the best yet.' -- The Observer, (Dave Gelly), October 20, 2013 * * * * *


'UK jazz writer Selwyn Harris has already produced two well-received box sets in the Jazz on Film series...This third set maintains the high standards. Handsomely packaged with copious liner notes...it's the perfect Christmas present for film buffs and jazzers alike.' -- The Irish Times, (Cormac Larkin), October 25, 2013 * * * *


'5-CDs and a handsome booklet featuring well designed period photographs and fine explanatory notes written by the set's producer, Selwyn Harris...A pivotal period in jazz within cinema history, successfully evoked.' -- Marlbank, (Stephen Graham), September 21, 2013 * * * *


'In this beautifully assembled 5-CD set, Miles' Lift to the Scaffold still drips cool and Martial Solal vividly conjures young Paris for Breathless.' -- The Times, (John Bungey), October 2013


'Jazz fans and film buffs are in for a treat as the latest edition in the critically acclaimed Jazz on Film series of boxed sets focuses on the rich audiovisual association between French New Wave film directors and US and French jazz giants.' -- Jazzwise, (Mike Flynn), October 2013


'Despite the serial number [JOF001] this is the third box set of soundtrack music that Selwyn Harris has produced, compiled and annotated...All the music is beautifully restored and remastered, and the liner notes are outstanding...Christmas is coming - you know what to do. And it's a bargain, too.' -- Jazz Breakfast, (Peter Bacon), October 21, 2013


'The CDs are accompanied by a 60-page booklet filled with Harris' brilliantly in-depth liner notes. With Christmas around the corner, this could be an ideal present for the jazz and film buffs who have (nearly) everything.' -- Jazz UK, October / November 2013


'The set is beautifully packaged and accompanied by a booklet prodigiously illustrated and benefiting from Harris' excellent liner notes...One of the triumphs of this French New Wave set is that it foregrounds the role played by jazz in the nouvelle vague's cinematic revolution, a role often neglected by film criticism. Suddenly, films didn't just look different. They sounded different too.' -- LondonJazzNews, (Dr. Nicolas Pillai), October 8, 2013


'Wow! any one of these 5 CD's would be in the running for Jazz Reissue of the Year. To get them all in one boxed set means game over - no contest.'

--Bebop Spoken Here, (Lance Liddle), October 1, 2013

I guess success must breed contempt because for whatever reason the collaborators who brought us the previous two excellent sets in this series, namely "Beat, Square & Cool" and "Film Noir" both under the 'Jazz on Film' imprint on the 'Moochin About' label, appear to have had a less than amicable split and now appear to be releasing rival sets the result of which is much confusion and a waste of resources. I have also read some reviews and comments on those reviews that are less about the product and more intent on bashing the rival output. Sad and unnecessary.

This set which can be identified by the red 'French" and white "New Wave" title at the top of the box and the 'Jazz on Film' label on the bottom right corner is the one that has been reviewed by all the papers, the BBC and other media. The quality is as high as the previous two releases and the booklet and packaging are in keeping with the precedents. Thus, one can argue that this is the 'official' release regardless of the fact that it now comes from 'Jazz on Film Records' as opposed to the former 'Moochin About' label. However, one can also argue that the other set, titled "Jazz on Film...The New Wave", is just as official because it too is continuing in a similar vein and is also produced by one of the parties responsible for the previous two sets. I suggest that all enthusiasts and collectors of the music buy both and make your own minds up. I admit this may not be financially possible for many and as a result one set will suffer. But which one? Such silliness may actually dissuade buyers from purchasing either It is a shame that the two rivals can't get come to some agreement and pool their considerable talents again rather than wasting resources and reducing each product's marketability by maintaining this rivalry.

THE FACTS ARE THIS: THE OWNER OF THIS COMPANY 'JAZZ ON FILM RECORDS' ALSO CO-OWNS THE COMPANY 'MOOCHIN ABOUT' THAT PRODUCED THE FIRST TWO VOLUMES FILM NOIR AND BEAT SQUARE & COOL. HE IS A JAZZ WRITER WHO COMPILED AND ANNOTATED THE BOOKLET NOTES FOR THOSE FIRST TWO BOX SETS. IT COULDN'T BE SIMPLER. SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CASE TO SAY THIS IS A ILLEGITIMATE VERSION!! THERE ARE TWO VERSIONS. YET THERE IS SADLY A LOT OF S*** STIRRING GOING ON ON THIS PAGE ORGANIZED BY THE RIVAL COMPANY.

Really enjoying the jazz on 'French New Wave'. Great sound and a lovely 60-page booklet too, just like the other two Jazz on Film titles before it

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant addition to Jazz on Film Series 7 Nov 2013
I bought the previous superb volumes in this series and this one is up there with them. Its is lovingly created and beautifully presented. Jazz writer Selwyn Harris produced the previous two box sets and maintains the quality and high standards here. Check the recent reviews and then buy.

This looses 2 stars for a cheap advertising stunt that makes it look like one of the moochin about sets. Where in this series is Vol 1 or Vol 2. Quite dreadful really. Read more
