Miles Davis - "KC Blues"
Miles Davis moved to New York in 1944, working with Charlie Parker from 1945-48. In 1949 he recorded Birth of the Cool, his first great album with arranger Gil Evans. In 1955 he formed a quintet with John Coltrane that became one of the leading bands of the 1950s. He later recorded Porgy and Bess and Sketches of Spain with Gil Evans. In 1958, Davis was reunited with Coltrane in a sextet and recorded Milestones, Kind of Blue in ‘59, and Sketches of Spain in 1960. In the 1960s Miles began working with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams and began experimentation with free jazz and rock. In the late 1960s Miles recorded In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew with new bandmembers Chick Corea Keith Jarrett, Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette. Miles Davis's impact on jazz is almost incalculable. During his fifty-year career, his characteristic clear tone, and the delicate shading of his Harmon mute influenced virtually every aspect jazz. He is one of jazz's true giants.
