58 Songs, 6 Hours 23 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This mammoth collection of cuts from 1955 to 1961 plays out like a private conversation between two jazz titans talking in their own harmonic language. On songs like the melancholic "'Round Midnight," Davis makes restrained and delicately phrased statements with his muted trumpet, while Coltrane blows through the feisty "Two Bass Hit" with his trademark intense expressive lyricism. This contrasting exploration of shared musical space comes to define the recordings, climaxing bewitchingly on the modal jazz cornerstone "So What."

Too good for words...but I'll make an attempt...

Miles Davis & John Coltrane, being two of the most respected jazz artists who will ever live, come together in 50+ wonderful recordings, that grace the speakers of restaurants and the speakers of home. The album is full of fantastic jazz including some of my favorites like "'Round Midnight," "Ah-Leu-Cha," and "Bye Bye Blackbird."

They don't make them like this anymore

This is a FANTASTIC collection.

I absolutely love it, it opened the doors for me to search out more Coltrane, more Miles (get Kind of Blue),and Ella. And "with a voice like Ella's ringing out there's no way the band can lose..."
This is not "Kenny G" jazz, try Kind of Blue first, if that does it for you, you need this album!
I bought this album oniTunes last year for 44.99 so this is a great buy, don't pass it up!
