For nearly six decades, Miles Davis has embodied all that is cool – in his music (and most especially jazz), in his art, fashion, romance, and in his international, if not intergalactic, presence that looms strong as ever today. Miles’ 30 years at Columbia was one of the longest exclusive signings in the history of jazz, and one that spanned at least a half-dozen distinct generations of changes in the music – virtually all of which were anticipated or led by Miles or his former sidemen.
A powerhouse sextet recording for the label featuring Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones, Miles' 1958 masterpiece Milestones captured the music legend's first modal jazz experiments in pieces like "Straight, No Chaser" and the immortal title track. Due to its position between the more famous ‘Round About Midnight and epochal Kind of Blue, Milestones remains, for too many music lovers, an overlooked classic! 180g audiophile vinyl from Sony Legacy presented in Mono with the original track listing.
