This Photo by Don Hunstein is found on pages 42-43 of the book accompanying the first Box Set, Miles Davis & Gil Evans: The Complete Columbia Studios Recordings, the first Metal Spine box contained in The GENIUS OF MILES DAVIS Trumpet Case box.
In March and April of 1959, Miles Davis entered Columbia Records’s esteemed 30th Street Studio to record what wouldbecome his critical and commercial masterpiece – the epochal Kind Of Blue.
Davis was joined by (left to right) John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, and Bill Evans. Not pictured is drummer Jimmy Cobb, the only surviving member of this original band. Cobb would later comment that Kind Of Blue was a record that “was made in Heaven.”
