Miles Photo of the Week: Miles Davis & John Coltrane

In 1959, trumpeter/band leader/composer Miles Davis assembled a sextet of legendary players, Cannonball Adderley (alto sax), Paul Chambers (bass), Jimmy Cobb (drums), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Bill Evans (piano) (Wynton Kelly plays piano on "Freddie Freeloader") to create "Kind of Blue," a sublime atmospheric masterpiece which continues to transport listeners a half century since its release. These Don Hunstein photographs of Miles and Trane in the studio were snapped during the April 1959 session that yielded "All Blues" and "Flamenco Sketches." For more information on this print, visit
