Miles Davis - The Complete Prestige 10-Inch LP Collection [2016] (11 x LP's)



Miles Davis - The Complete Prestige 10-Inch LP Collection [2016] (11 x LP's)

Miles Davis is at once one of the most musically influential and most popular artists in the history of jazz. And his legendary Prestige recordings are amongst the all-time classics in the genre. Just in time to celebrate what would have been Miles' 90th birthday, Miles Davis: The Complete Prestige 10-Inch LP Collection presents all ten 10-inch LPs on which Miles Davis appeared as a leader for Prestige Records (1951 1954), plus a bonus LP featuring Davis as a guest artist with Lee Konitz, faithfully reproduced on 10-inch vinyl, with the original LP cover artwork and liner notes included. Also included is a 16-page booklet featuring rare photographs and insightful new notes by GRAMMY Award-winning author Ashley Kahn, as well as a collectible print of a painting by Miles.

The Complete Prestige 10-Inch LP Collection even rewards when you least expect it, like in 1951’s Lee Konitz Featuring Miles Davis, one of the few times, besides with Bird, where Miles was a sideman. (Cannonball Adderley’s 1958 Blue Note album Somethin’ Else was another, a record so luminous Uniqlo made a T-shirt out of it.) They were colleagues from Birth of the Cool, and Miles liked his playing, even defended him when he was criticized by other black musicians for hiring a white saxophonist. Konitz, the proto avant-gardist who was the first musician to record for Prestige in '49, worked hard, like Miles, to never sound like anyone else, and the two are almost otherworldly here, drifting inquisitively around each other, then as one, as if it were the birth of the free-cool. The daring hints at what would come, for Konitz (still underrated and still playing challenging music at age 88), and for Miles, always prepared to risk, always willing to move beyond his comfort zone. To hear Miles Davis develop, as a person, as a musician, and as a bandleader, in the midst of technological changes, makes this series of recordings on Prestige specialized, yes, but also quite special.

Includes such jazz luminaries as: Art Blakey, Al Cohn, Kenny Dorham, Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Haynes, Percy Heath, Milt Jackson, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver and Zoot Sims, among many others. (Amazon)
