Doxy present Michel Legrand's original soundtrack for Eva, directed by Joseph Losey and released in 1962. Michel Legrand, the so-called Mozart of the new wave cinema, was made fully aware that he was actually the director's second choice for Eva's soundtrack. Joseph Losey originally wanted Miles Davis for the project. But Legrand's beautifully constructed jazz score serves as a perfect complement to the charismatic images of the film's Venetian setting. The main character's love of jazz music is reflected within Legrand's score.
The film also contains two Billie Holiday tracks "Willow Weep For Me" and "Loveless Love". "Adam & Eve" features vocals by Tony Middleton. A fascinating and musically rich score, one of those European '60s soundtracks that simply shouldn't be missed.
Edition of 500.
