Miles Davis & Gil Evans team up for three big band releases. In mono!
180 gram audiophile vinyl
Miles Ahead (1957) marks the start of Miles’ collaboration with Gil Evans, orchestra arranger and conductor whose combined forces also yielded Sketches Of Spain [MOVLP692] and Porgy & Bess [MOVLP690].
In a time where Big Bands were no longer fashionable, the duo forged their own path anyway and put a 19-piece band behind Davis. The ballads “Miles Ahead” and “Blues for Pablo” showcase Miles’s sensitive side, which shines through fully on these songs in particular.
