The Complete Birth of the Cool [Blue Note] ()


Capitol's The Complete Birth of the Cool is a double-disc set that's separated into two halves. The first contains all 12 tracks Davis cut in the studio in January 1949 with Gil Evans. The second contains three radio broadcasts that the Birth of the Cool nonet performed in September 1948 at the Royal Roost in New York City. All the recordings have been completely remastered, resulting in the best ever sound for these recordings. The set also features brand new liner notes from Phil Schapp, plus the original liners. All the added features help make The Complete Birth of the Cool the definitive chronicle of one of the most important eras in jazz history. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi Hide synopsis

The definitive C D. What else can I say? Miles Davis just expanded from this beginning. Nothing experimental. He knew what he wanted to say with his music. More
