The Collaboration That Created the Greatest Jazz Album of All Time
Miles debuted on Columbia Records with 'Round About Midnight, which established his classic first quintet and defined hard bop. As a result of Miles' exposure John Coltrane began to develop a reputation amongst musicians as a major voice. Milestones was Davis' first use of modes and joined by Cannonball Adderly the band became a powerful sextet. The '58 Sessions introduced Bill Evans to the world of Miles Davis and Evans' influence was apparent from these initial sessions.
Miles' attitude became more focused and romantic and resulted in the Kind Of Blue recording, which many consider to be one of Jazz Music's great recordings. Someday My Prince Will Come brought Miles into a funkier setting with Hank Mobley and Wynton Kelly joining Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb. Coltrane was brought in to record two songs on this session.
