Amazon.com

The first of two reconfigured CDs of Miles Davis's work for Blue Note collects 1952 and 1954 sessions that belie his debilitation from drug use during most of the period. On bop standards such as "Donna" and "Woody 'n You," cut in '52 with a sextet including Jackie McLean on alto sax and Kenny Clarke on drums, Miles burns despite his personal problems, letting fly runs that sneer at his demons. On later sides featuring pianist Horace Silver, bassist Percy Heath and drummer Art Blakey, he brings a full-on panache to Monk's "Well You Needn't" and a trademark delicacy to "It Never Entered My Mind." Once he got past his addiction, such qualities were the order of the day, but this music is no less powerful for his struggles. --Rickey Wright

What is cool? At its very essence, cool is all about what’s happening next. In popular culture, what’s happening next is a kaleidoscope encompassing past, present and future: that which is about to happen may be cool, and that which happened in the distant past may also be cool.

for people who have a spark of curiosity about the legendary music of Miles Davis, knowing where to begin the search can be a frustrating issue. with a back catalogue as vast as a small continent, figuring out where to start and where to go can be tricky. especially considering the many phases of Miles' long and adventerous career. he spawned many folowers and imitators and made many enemies along the way. a larger than life figure who would dominate the jazz scene for decades and whose music still holds power and brilliance even to this day. Personally, i have been such a big John Coltrane fan for so many years, that i somehow blindly overlooked Miles Davis' recorded output for a long time. it's just been in the past 4 years or so that i have gotten the opportunity to dig into Miles' absolutely stunning and quite frankly, overwhelming music. whereas Coltrane was the master of melody, Miles is the master of the mood. a true genius whose musical impact and influence is felt even stronger today than it was when he was alive.

Vol. 1 is a collection of some of his early Blue Note recording sessions and they show Miles and band in fine fine form. that great steady bebop sound is prevelant and the dexterity of these players is something to behold. even though there were a lot of performers who were playing this style of jazz back in the day, few could play up to this calibur.

a note about my cd: i'm not sure if its because my copy is a japanese version of this album, but my tracklisting differs greatly from the one shown here on amazon. my disc plays as follows:

01. Tempus Fugit

02. Kelo

03. Enigma

04. Ray's Idea

05. How Deep Is The Ocean

06. C.T.A. - alternate master

07. Dear Old Stockholm

08.
