Well, really, what can you say? Miles Davis's prolific output for Columbia Records may be the single greatest set of recordings one artist made for one label. From his hard-bop-era label debut, 'ROUND ABOUT MIDNIGHT, to his somewhat controversial 1985 recasting of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" into a meditative, moody gem, Davis constantly pushed the boundaries of jazz. Along the way, he created Gil Evans-arranged masterpieces like SKETCHES OF SPAIN and PORGY AND BESS, the career pinnacle KIND OF BLUE, and jazz-rock trailblazers like IN A SILENT WAY and BITCHES BREW.
Arranging the set by theme (standards, blues, originals, moods, and electric) instead of chronology makes it somewhat difficult to chart the progress of Miles' experiments, but it does make each CD a pleasurably coherent listen. While it's impossible for four CDs to feature much beyond the very best of Davis's Columbia years, this set is a handy introduction for newcomers.
