If you ask people around you, they will tell you that A kind of Blue was Miles’ best album. I beg to differ as to me, Miles Ahead was his best early album.
I am currently using this music before going to bed. After a long day of studying sustainability, I find this music soothing, calming, relaxing. It litterally fills me with joy and hope.
An amazing amount of twenty people were necessary for the music of this album. Here is some Wikpedia for you to learn more about it:
Miles Ahead is an album by Miles Davis that was released in 1957 by Columbia Records. It was Davis’ first collaboration with arranger Gil Evans following the Birth of the Cool sessions. Along with their subsequent collaborations Porgy and Bess (1959) and Sketches of Spain (1960), Miles Ahead is one of the most famous recordings of Third Stream, a fusion of jazz, European classical, and world musics. Davis played flugelhorn throughout.
The official website will give you more details on this album, which will be sixty years old next year.
