Biography

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. This timeless quality, when it applies to music, allows minimalist debate – with few ... Read more in Amazon's Miles Davis Store

The original of this compilation was a 1956 compilation on a 12" vinyl album by Prestige, incorporating tracks from no less than four earlier 10" vinyl albums -- a sensible way of repackaging an outmoded record system. (Consider that stores like Woolworth's and Kresge "dimestores" were selling a lot of records by the early to mid-1950s and they needed to stock them in bins that would hold one size, the prevailing or preferred 12" Long-Playing (LP) 33 1/3rpm album -- all those "old-fashioned" 10" vinyl albums were essentially worthless unless repacked this way.) Bob Weinstock of Prestige records had some dynamite backlist titles that were unsaleable now, but he wisely calculated that Miles Davis, by no means the most prevalent player on these various tracks, was the true marquee name. So it became an album using the title of one of his tunes from an October 5, 1951 album, CONCEPTION, with selections from other tunes from the period by different artists. Actually, the first six tunes here are from (Prestige LP116, Mar. 8, 1951) Lee Konitz - The New Sounds, with Miles, Sal Mosca piano, Billy Bauer guitar, Arnold Fishkin bass, Max Roach drums; tracks 5 & 6 are duets between Konitz and Bauer. Then come two tracks from the Miles album (above), "Conception" and "My Old Flame." Next, two tracks from Stan Getz, "Prezervation," from a Jun. 6, 1949, session called STAN GETZ BOP STARS (Prestige 7516) with Al Haig piano, Gene Ramey bass, and Stan Levey drums; and the Jan. 6, 1950 session (also on Prestige 7516), with Haig, Tommy Potter bass and Roy Haynes d. And finally, the compilation closes with two cuts from a Mar.Read more ›

This is no Miles Davis concept LP; Jon A. Jackson's review here explains the situation well. But be assured that if you're interested in early Cool this material is for you.

The tracks clearly aren't outtakes, and all of the combos here are historically and aesthetically special. The Konitz/Bauer duets for example might receive the smallest bill but they're inimitable masterpieces.

It's fascinating to hear Miles integrated with the Tristano gang on the first four tracks. I always wondered how and why he diverged from Konitz et al. He does more than keep up with their stringent kind of thing, and I don't think there was another trumpeter that could have just four years after Bird's quintet recorded their last side. But already his voice expressed a frosty cognizance that was far too individual to have continued long with the "classless society" of that school. He was destined to go his own way.

Konitz as usual is wonderful throughout, and his tracks alone are worth the purchase---he never recorded enough in those days.

A truly eye-opening album, Milestones give away very little of what would be later known as the Miles Davis music. The pieces on this album sound entirely different than Kind of Blue or the later Bitches Brew. If you enjoy the likes of Luis Armstrong and you feel like going on an adventure inside modern jazz, this is a great piece to start with.
Note that the album I am talking about has the same track listing, but on the cover there is Milestones instead of Conceptions, this is probably some Amazon error.
