For the TV version (IFC/Romance Channel) much of the soundtrack needed to be re-recorded for licensing reasons. Even Miles Davis' "All Blues" although it is referred to by name during the scene. "All Blues" was replaced with "Giles Davis's Horn Blues," a composition by Spottiswoode and McMahon with Kevin Cordt performing on trumpet. The actors had to overdub the lines and say "Giles" instead of Miles and "Horn" instead of "All". See more
