The Jazz Track LP compilation is made up of two unrelated studio sessions.
The A Side Recorded on Dec 4, 1957, is devoted to ten songs composed by Miles Davis for the soundtrack to the French film L'Ascenseur Pour l'Echafaud.
The B Side represents only a portion of the May 26, 1958, studio session that has since been reissued in full on CD.
