PARIS JAZZ EN NOIR ET BLANC

Jazz and thriller movies are like a match made in heaven, they suit each other perfectly, it is the case in a lot of French films noirs from the late fifties, partly because it was the sound of the time, and many young French directors were real fans of the genre, but also because Paris at the time was a magnet for many American musicians based over there or touring. The trend started in 1958 with Louis Malle Lift to the scaffold, with a young Jeanne Moreau and the powerfully emotional trumpet solo of Miles Davis cries over the Parisian cityscape, a thriller that was aesthetically speaking a precursor to the forthcoming nouvelle vague.
