Biography

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

This album brings together some great Miles Davis songs. A very relaxing and enjoyable album, containing some really mellow tracks like Summertime, Freddie Freeloader, Bye Bye Blackbird. An album I return to again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does it get any better?... 5 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Whoever selected this inspired combination of Miles Davis' tracks spanning over 30 years of playing deserves huge praise because it fits, it works, and it just flows. It is in fact nothing more or less than the title suggests but, because it features one of the world's greatest musicians, it all adds up to one of the most beautiful jazz CD's ever released... brilliant and totally undiscovered it's an absolute "must" for anyone who wants to know how good mellow jazz can get.

By The Guardian TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This superb and much-played (by me) CD is exactly what its title says: "A collection of classic tracks from the softer side of Miles Davis". It's 100% instrumental, with Miles' expressive trumpet playing actually taking over the nominal vocal line in many numbers and so incidentally demonstrating his virtuosity through a wide range of moods and styles.

Miles admitted later in life that he had "always loved playing ballads" but rarely allowed himself the luxury of doing so onstage, where he constantly pushed the envelope of experimental jazz to new levels. "Mellow Miles" showcases many of his more melodious numbers taken from "Kind of Blue" plus several excellent covers including: "Bye Bye Blackbird," Gershwin's "Summertime" taken from the "Porgy and Bess" collaboration with Gil Evans, and Porcaro & Bettis' "Human Nature" which many people associate with Michael Jackson.

This collection is a perfect introduction to Miles Davis' great trumpet playing and can be listened to anywhere, anytime with a keen ear, or alternately used as high-quality background music where its melodious ambient sound will not be too intrusive. If you have it in your collection, it's the kind of album you will play again and again, and then again, for years and years. In fact, it's outright brilliant.

Even if you think you don't like jazz, give it a listen: you may like it, and be tempted to move on to the more innovative and demanding stuff (if so, try "In a Silent Way" next).

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant introduction to Miles Davis 2 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
With an enormous back catalogue like Miles Davis's this is a great introduction to his work. As a stand alone album it's a great choice of songs that will have you listening again and again. His seminal work is 'Kind of Blue' and all the best from that album are here.
You'll hear covers from Michael Jackson and Cindi Lauper and all fuse to deliver a mellow afternoon of Jazz moods. Enjoy.
