Miles Davis Complete Birth Of The Cool

 

 

 

'Genius' is a word used somewhat loosely in the music world, but few would dispute assigning that label to the one and only Miles Davis.

This year, Blue Note will re-release Miles's legendary Complete Birth Of The Cool sessions on one CD. These are the entire album sessions plus a live recording taped at the Royal Roost, New York City, during Miles's two-week residency of September 1948. The collection perfectly captures an epochal shift in Jazz, a move from the revolutionary, frenetic sounds of bebop to a more considered, impressionistic style, focusing on richly-chorded, mostly mid-tempo material and resplendent soloing.

Also central to Miles's 'cool jazz' concept was the presence of composer/arranger Gil Evans, who, across three separate New York recording dates during 1949 and 1950, assembled a red-hot nonet of musicians including saxists Lee Konitz and Gerry Mulligan, trombonists JJ Johnson and Kai Winding, pianists John Lewis and Al Haig and drummers Max Roach and Kenny Clarke.

The sessions were subsequently released on several 10 78s, but not brought together in album form until 1957. This CD edition is the ultimate version of the expanded 1998 CD set, cut from the original singles masters with gatefold packaging, rare photos, a new essay by esteemed jazz writer Ashley Kahn (Kind Of Blue, A Love Supreme) and the full, speed-corrected Royal Roost gig featuring Mulligan, Konitz, Haig and Roach.
