Description
On every critic's list of essential jazz albums, this collection of arrangements by Miles Davis's nonet, recorded at three sessions over the course of a year (194950), was the cradle for the ensuing West Coast cool movement. Pieces like "Venus de Milo," "Israel," "Godchild," "Rocker," "Rouge," "Move," "Jeru," "Moon Dreams," and "Boplicity" sound so fresh that it's hard to believe that 65 years have elapsed since Davis, Gil Evans, and Gerry Mulligan began experimenting with innovations that would forever alter the sound of jazz.

"Allusive, magical scores that channeled the irresistible energy of bop into surprising textures and piquant settings for improvisation. Davis and Konitz played as if a new world were almost within their grasp."Penguin Guide

"The album that confirmed that Davis was destined to be an innovator. Gem-like perfection."MusicHound Jazz
