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

Product Description

Trumpeter and bandleader Miles Davis was a truly influential figure, not only in jazz but music as a whole. His career, which extended from the end of World War II to his death in 1991, age 65, continues to resonate. Featured here are no less than 6 of his album releases: "'Round About Midnight", "Relaxing With The Miles Davis Quintet", "Miles Ahead", "Cookin' With The Miles Davis Quintet", "Steamin' With The Miles Davis Quintet" and the rare and critically acclaimed movie soundtrack "Ascenseur pour l'echafaud". All tracks have been digitally re-mastered for optimum sound quality.

Format: Audio CD
Rather like the Sinatra set on Not Now Music this latest Miles Davis release brings together a huge amount of material. Total running time approx 204 minutes. The liner notes are from Michael Heatley again and the whole thing is well illustrated too. It includes no fewer than 6 albums which are in sequence `Round About Midnight 1956; Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet 1956; Miles Ahead 1957; Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet 1956 (selections from); Ascenseur pour I'echafaud 1957 and Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet 1956. The personnel details are included and the sound quality is very good throughout. This is a rare opportunity to acquire so many definitive performances at a great price.

Format: Audio CD
'This box set of the 4 Davis-Coltrane albums are perhaps the greatest jazz albums ever made and for
only 4.99 it is probably the greatest boon ever extended to humans. From the liner notes I learned
that Miles had to give Prestige Records 3 parting albums in order to switch over to Columbia
(where he recorded the impeccable & flawless marvel `Round Midnight - perhaps THE single greatest jazz
album ever). His final three albums for Prestige were Relaxin' Cookin' & Steamin'. I purchased all 4 of these albums
in 1959 when I was 13 & I must have listened to `Oleo' `If I Were A Bell' `Blues by Five' `I
Could Write A Book' et al - over a thousand times. And yet when I listen to them again today over and over
they make more chills go up and down my spine than they did when I was 13 - because I'm older and smarter now and much more aware of
what is great, what is genius, and what is just mediocre-average. After listening to everyone the last 50 years
I think Miles Davis & John Coltrane were/are the two greatest jazz musicians who ever existed. I think I'm fortunate they were born & have been
very enriched by the astounding wonderful mind-boggling music they created.

Format: Audio CD
The good people at Not Now Music should be congratulated for their dedication to reissuing classics of jazz at bargain prices, with a minimum of fuss, sensibly economical packaging, great sound, adequate notes and full track listings.
There`s about three and a half hours of Miles at his mid-50s peak here, from the albums made with Coltrane in `56 to the magnificent Miles Ahead and his soundtrack to Louis Malle`s `57 film Ascenseur pour l`echafaud (Lift to the Scaffold).
The first CD in this three-disc banquet consists of the superb if unexceptional `Round About Midnight followed by the terrific Relaxin`. Standards are mixed with originals, all in gleaming sound. There are times when, for example, Red Garland`s piano feels like it`s in the room with you.
As on Cookin` and Steamin`, the other two apostrophied records included here (their companion - Workin` - is absent, due no doubt to lack of space) the quintet is completed by bassist Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones on drums. What a legendary line-up. They cook, steam, and indeed relax, as though they`ve been playing together for years.
Miles Ahead is something else. His second collaboration with Gil Evans (after Birth Of The Cool a decade earlier) this pairs Miles with a small orchestra on mostly shortish tracks. His fellow musicians include Lee Konitz, Art Taylor, Ernie Royal, Jimmy Cleveland, and ever-loyal Paul Chambers. I have to declare here that, admire it as I do, I can only take the Gil Evans sound in smallish doses, as I find it a little samey after a while, occasionally even a touch bland. But over one album, it`s beguiling, as it is here on this fairly impressionistic set of ten tunes, none of which outstay their welcome.
The soundtrack is something else again!
