Miles Davis was one of the most important and influential jazz figures. His career, which spanned nearly fifty years, covers jazz history throughout the second half of the Twentieth Century and was marked by his constant evolution and his search for new artistic goals. With equal passion, Davis participated in bebop, cool and modal jazz, and later, in the formation of hard bop and the fusion of jazz with rock & roll. The sound of his trumpet – completely identifiable given his use of the Harmon mute – gave him a personal and intimate feeling, a soft and melodious sound which frequently led to lyricism and introspection. He was superb playing ballads, and some of his best studio performances of the genre can be found on this LP, which includes works with small groups, mainly quartets presenting Miles as BN the only horn.
