Davis spent the most groundbreaking years of his career on Columbia; volume eight of that label's "This Is Jazz" series offers a survey, however inherently limited, of his work from 1955 to 1965, a period that covers his two classic quintets, the recording of KIND OF BLUE and his first work with Gil Evans. What THE BEST OF MILES DAVIS includes is material from BIRTH OF THE COOL, represented by three cuts from that LP, and from sessions done between 1952 and 1954 that featured musicians like J.J. Johnson, Jackie McLean, Jimmy Heath, Percy Heath and Art Blakey. It's an interesting period, in that neither Blue Note nor Davis had quite developed into the icons they were about to become. Ironically, with the final two cuts on this collection (from 1959's SOMETHING ELSE), both the label and Miles can be heard doing precisely what they became best known for: the album, released under Cannonball Adderly's name, imparts the smoky, noir atmosphere that characterized Blue Note's reputation as the home of hard bop, while Davis, radically reinterpreting standards like "Autumn Leaves," sounds at once pointillistic, introspective and decidedly badass.
Artist Overview
Few musicians have managed to change the course of music--trumpeter Miles Davis did it several times. An early disciple of Charlie Parker, Davis created an austere, understated approach that became the model for cool. His superb albums in the 1950s made him a star, and in the following decade, he brought small-group jazz to the limit before he unapologetically (and, for some, unforgivably) took on jazz-rock. After a break, he re-emerged in the '80s with a mixture of pop and dense, bristling funk. All the while, his refusal to follow anyone but his own muse made him both a hero and an enigma--either way, he was one of the most magnetic, influential figures in American music.
