Birth of the Cool is a compilation album by American jazz musician Miles Davis, released in 1957 on Capitol Records. It compiles eleven tracks recorded by Davis's nonet for the label over the course of three sessions during 1949 and 1950. Featuring unusual instrumentation and several notable musicians, the music consisted of innovative arrangements influenced by classical music techniques such as polyphony, and marked a major development in post-bebopjazz. As the title suggests, these recordings are considered seminal in the history of cool jazz. Most of them were originally released in the 10-inch 78-rpm format and are all approximately three minutes long. As of 2018, Lee Konitz is the only surviving member of the Birth of the Cool sessions.

A celebrated landmark of Polish cinema, Innocent Sorcerers has been restored from its original materials and is presented in a new director-approved High-Definition transfer. Following after his renowned War trilogy, Andrzej Wajda made this provocative film about contemporary youth from a script co-written by Jerzy Skolimowski (Deep End). A commentary on the lives of young people who grew up in the new, post-war communist Poland, Wajda chronicles a bohemian milieu of motor-scooters, love, sex and jazz with great vitality and humour. The rebellion the film depicts is social and moral, not political - and the film angered both Communist and Church authorities by showing its young characters’ explicit rejection of any ideological affinity. With an outstanding cast headed by Tadeusz Łomnicki, Polish superstar Zbigniew Cybulski, a young Roman Polanski and featuring an incredible jazz score by renowned composer Krzysztof Komeda, this is a key film of the period and in its director’s oeuvre - and one that has substantially grown in stature over time.

Seinen Post-Bop-Stil kombiniert er mit energiereichen Improvisationen und Bezügen auf Größen wie Don Cherry, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman und Dizzy Gillespie.
