in essence - this is a superior official Columbia label 2 cd compilation of some peak era Miles that covers his early 1940 s jazz all the way to his 1983 lp Tutu . Miles Davis is of course a pivotal figure in music , not just jazz and this double cd gives a fairly wide sweep of the great trumpeter , visionary and musical innovators career.

Miles styles are very wide here as befits the great man s breadth of expression : 40's bop jazz, sublime late night ballads, orchestral , modal exploratory , electric dark languid yet funky, electric poppier / fusion - all pretty much all here as a great introduction collection on an official label (not one of the cash-in re-release companies out there releasing a lot of jazz 5 or 8 cd collections but that omit original lp artwork or liner notes etc)

The Essential is a fine if neccesarily not complete collection (that would take approximately 10 cd s of material to really represent Miles full range of musical styles and best material : yes really) that at present on amazon cost much less than £5 to your door. for two hours of marvellous music that is so much more than "jazz" - highly recommended

The Essential Miles Davis is a compromise, an artist who has produced so many classic tracks can not be confined to two CD's - although the music here is excellent it should really be a spring board towards further Miles exploration.. I think Miles jazz-fusion era is a little under represented in general (although tracks from that era are super long).. 'Bitches Brew' and 'The Complete Jack Johnson Sessions' make great companions to this CD.. All of 'Kind of Blue' (biggest selling jazz album ever) could make any greatest hits - and there should be some love for often ignored 'Quiet Nights' - favourite Miles song is 'Joshua' which is sadly not here.. Still a great place to start :)
