Discover Miles Davis


by William Ruhlmann

Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was dazzlingly protean. To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz ... Read more in Amazon's Miles Davis Store

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Graham Chapman on 7 April 2012
Format: Audio CD
I guess I am in no way qualified to review jazz. Another reviewer suggests that Miles is 'hesitant' and 'reading' in his playing of 'When Lights are Low'. It must take some confidence to say that. I remember first hearing this on a cassette someone made me with this album (and 'Bags Groove' - another brilliant early Miles album, if you like the vibraphone). It was 'When Lights are Low' that first made me pay attention to Miles - and to some extent jazz in general. A lovely romantic piece that sends the mind bouncing along, like many of Miles's records do. 'Blue Haze' (the track) seems to tell a story, maybe a John Cheever one, or one of your own. I like its narrative feel.

It's useful to know who played what and when and what happened, but its the lyricism and the optimism of Miles's 50s records that make them still matter all these years later. Jazz buffs know what to buy, but, for anyone else reading, this is a wonderful record. Buy it and stay miles ahead.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By S. M. Goodyer on 30 Jun. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Eight tracks of Miles in his early days recorded by Bob Weinstock for his Prestige record label. Three different sessions dated between May '53 and April "54. The first line up has John Lewis(p) Charles Mingus (p) Percy Heath (b) Max Roach (d),three tracks including Miles Ahead (not the same as the same title with Gill Evans+19 ) but a Pretty medium tempo tune with a confident solo from Miles and good backing from John Lewis,based on the chord changes of Milestones.Other tunes include Smooch by Mingus,a slow burner,and the standard When Lights Are Low which Miles sounds a little hesitant at times as if reading it,to me. March '54 with Horace Silver (p)P.H.(b) Art Blakey(d) produced three tunes in a more lively style thanks to the change in piano and drums. OLd Devil Moon is best for me asuper tune well played.The April '54 date gives us only one tune the very well known I'll Remember April and with the addition of the little known David Schildkraut (as) who takes his chance and provides a sparkling solo a la Paul Desmond, Miles is muted throughout and the tempo is brisk,Horace is his funky, a much more confidant performance. Pity about the short running time of 37 mins however well worth having.

I don't understand 3 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't understand what the previous "reviewer" was talking about, that miles was playing it square here. This is a beautiful, relaxed album, and one of the only quartet recordings miles did. Plus, he plays the open trumpet on every tune. He made this album when he was waking up from his blue haze of heroin addiction, right before he went on to huge fame and success and you can hear all his new ideas formulating on this record. However, if you're only accustomed to later Miles Davis records where he was fueled by fiery tenormen like Shorter and Coltrane, then maybe it might sound too laid back for you. I dunno.

Early Miles!! Outstanding Miles!! 26 July 2004
By RSProds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yeah, we know Miles went through many phases and stages, but this is where I started with Miles after I initially heard "Sketches of Spain", then I went to "Round MidNight" with Coltrane, and then backwards to Mile's Charlie Parker days, then I went forward to "Live at the BlackHawk", then "Kind of Blue". Whew. That's alot of ground, but Miles was mercurial and great at everything he did, never stopping very long to smell a particular group of roses before moving on to the next challenge.

The 'Piece D'Resistance' here is the extended performance of "I'll Remember April". A huge, mind-opening performance!! Arrangement-wise (very uptempo & Native-American oriented), performance-wise, it's just wonderful, and I've listened to it for decades with the same wonder and enjoyment. Kenny Clarke's brushwork is too much, and Davey Schildkraut (alto) and Miles (muted trumpet) blow wonderful, inspired solos still fresh today; but Horace Silver's two piano solos steal the show and even his piano fills during the magnificent Percy Heath 'walking bass' section are exceptional. Worth the entire CD!! Don't miss this!

"Tune Up" and "Smooch" (with Mingus' amazing pianism and double stops) are also great, but another gem is "Four". Few times in the history of jazz music has so much wonderful stuff been done in so little time than on "Four". Totally mesmerizing. And I absolutely love Miles' solo, the ultra hip and clever Horace Silver piano solo, and Blakey's wonderful rimshot groupings. WOW!

AFTERTHOUGHT: The song "Tune Up" later received a legendary extended and wonderful performance by Sonny Rollins on The Very Best. Mingus also displays more of his piano work on his solo piano CD [Mingus Plays Piano]. Buy all three and enjoy the overlap.

Among the Best of Mid-Career Miles 27 Aug. 2008
By Jerry Engelbach - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a jazz pianist. I still have the orignal LP of this, the first by Miles that I ever owned. Several of the hundreds of songs I know I learned from this album. It's a classic, with an enviable lineup of world-class musicians and first-rate, sensitive solos. It marks a time of extended transition for Miles between his bebop/cool beginnings and his later modal and post-bop periods.

Boppin' a Cool Groove 15 Mar. 2009
By Best Of All - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Taken from three distinct recording sessions - with bassist Percy Heath being the only consistent sideman - the album was released in 1954.

Featuring musicians like Kenny Clarke (d), Art Blakey (d), Horace Silver (p) and Charles Mingus (p), the material is from May 19, 1953; March 15, 1954 and April 3, 1954. The eight tracks clock in at 30:05, with Miles Ahead and the title track edging away from the tight pack of quality music.

The playing may not be fast and furious, but the sound is smooth as Miles is churning out cool grooves.

Where's This Been My Whole Life?? 28 July 2013
By R. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have probably 25 Miles albums and have been listening to him for 30 years. Somehow I was reading on here and found out about the fact that this album had some tracks from an all start session in 1954 that were legendary. So I bought it and since then have been stupidly addicted to the track 'I'll Remember April,' which is not only wonderful to listen to, it will blow up most notions you have about the history of jazz. It's eerie anxiety sounds like the jazz of the early to mid 60s. The solo by David Schildkraut is seriously one of the most amazing sax solos ever (IMHO) and I had never even heard of the dude. (Mingus was once blindfolded at a radio station and asked to identify players from recordings and thought DS was Charlie Parker.) Anyway, worth the purchase for that one track, which is completely amazing. Oh, a friend of mine who is a jazz musician said when that track was finally released in the late 60s (was too long for a 50s album), everyone was trying to imitate it.
