iTunes Review

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!

The Two

Miles and Trane...there is nothing else to say! Just buy it and groove endlessly.

Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was dazzlingly protean. To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz from the mid-'40s to the early '90s, since he was in the thick of almost every important innovation and stylistic development in the...
