kein anderer jazzmusiker spielte im laufe seiner 50jährigen karriere die trompete so lyrisch und melodisch wie miles davis. kein wunder, verlieh er seinem spiel dadurch eine ganz persönliche note. miles davis trug in großem maße zur entwicklung der jazzgeschichte bei und hatte zwischen den 40er und frühen 90er jahren bei jeder stilentwicklung seine hände mit im spiel. viele seiner anhänger behaupten sogar, dass der jazz in dem moment zum stillstand kam, als miles davis nicht mehr da war. auf dieser vinyl befindet sich ua der titel so what, eine jazzkomposition aus dem jahr 1959, dieser song wurde zum inbegriff des modalen jazz. auch die weiteren aufnahmen sind eine besondere rarität für alle fans des ausnahme-musikers.
scorned by critics at the time of its release, miles davis 1972 album >on the corner< is now seen as a forerunner of post punk, hip hop, drum and bass and electronic music, thanks to its revolutionary recording techniques. miles wanted to reconnect with a younger audience, who had forsaken him for rock and funk, and the experimental >on the corner< was his answer. leaning more heavily on a drum and bass groundwork, the overdubs consisted of free improvisations held in the studio. >on the corner< isnt one of miles easiest records to listen to, but it can yield the most fruits. now released with completely re-mastered audio on 180 grams audiophile vinyl in gatefold sleeve.
at the start of the fifties miles davis career had hit a barrier which, for a period of time, seemed insurmountable, but by mid-decade, with his substance-abuse troubles behind him, he had established himself as one of the major artists on the modern jazz scene. kind of blue can often be found at the very top of jazz record polls and, despite competing claims, is probably the best-selling jazz record of all time. the listener should be in no doubt that they now own some of the most essential music of the twentieth century and on gleaming blue 180g vinyl!

miles davis ist unbestritten einer der einflussreichsten größen des jazz des zwanzigsten jahrhunderts, der vor allen durch seine musikalische offenheit ohne genre-scheuklappen in seiner über 50-jährigen karriere immer für innovationen des genres stand. miles hatte zu jeder zeit immer wieder die jüngere generation der musiker mit einbezogen, er hat gierig auch deren wissen, können und musikverständnis aufgesaugt und dabei für sich viel neues entdeckt, was dann scheinbar spielerisch mit seiner schon fast unerreichbaren kunst des trompetenspiels in seinen kompositionen eindrucksvoll belegt wurde.
für »amandla« übernahm miles davis 1989 ein letztes mal die rolle des bandleaders, die er auf den vorgänger-alben (»tutu« und »siesta«) größtenteils an den bassisten marcus miller abgetreten hatte. hier ist die elite von miles damaliger liveband zu hören, d. h. neben marcus miller (als multi-instrumentalist) z. b. kenny garrett (alt-saxofon), paulinho da costa (percussioni), foley (gitarre) oder omar hakim (drums).
in 1949 miles davis, gerry mulligan and gil evans - theyd never met before - gravitated together with the natural affinity of kindred souls. combined, they gave each other a spiritual boost that resulted in many all-night sessions of earnest discussion, writing and playing-productive work on new musical ideas, new voicings, new concepts of jazz. their first appearance startled a delighted jazz public, and marked the birth of the cool. today, these famous miles davis instrumentals are as exciting as ever, and here are in all their glory.
the double live album dark magus was recorded on march 30, 1974, at carnegie hall in new york city. dark magus was released after davis 1975 retirement. after releasing the live recordings agharta (1975) and pangaea (1976), dark magus was originally only released in japan.
the 180 gram audiophile vinyl is housed in a gatefold sleeve.
originally released in 1958, jazz track is comprised of two distinct sessions (one on each side). side 1 features miles brilliantly improvised soundtrack to the louis malle noir classic ascenseur pour l échafaud while side 2 is a 1958 nyc session featuring the unreal band of john coltrane, cannonball adderley, bill evans, paul chambers, and jimmy cobb - the very first recordings from the band that would go on to make kind of blue the following year. another important piece of jazz history reissued by doxy on 180 gram high quality vinyl. the accompanying cd includes two bonus tracks taken from the same session as side 2 of the lp.
after john coltrane and cannonball adderly left the quintet, miles davis was forced to search for new qualified musicians. he found them in hank mobley, wynton kelly, jimmy cobb and paul chambers. in 1961, just two years after recording kind of blue, miles and his new line up started recording energetically and finished someday my prince will come after only three days.
this album is a cross-over from kind of blue (movlp019), which is known for the typical miles davis-tunes, to traditional pop-standards such as the eponymous title track from >snow white and the seven dwarfs<.
music on vinyl turned this classic album, including glaring solos from john coltrane (joining miles on two tracks on this album) and hank mobley, into a true gem! this record is re-mastered on 180 grams audiophile vinyl.
kind of blue is probably the best-selling jazz record of all time. we precede the familiar stereo version with the legendary kind of blue mono mix - legendary because columbia records claimed that the tapes had been discarded long ago. the avaxhome audiophile website approved of the new perspective mono offers on a time-honoured classic, saying: if youre only used to hearing it in stereo, this will be a different experience. it sounds kind of forward, particularly the saxes. overall it has a nice timbre, especially in the midrange.
vinyl 1: mono version (cl 1355)
vinyl 2: stereo version (cs 8163)
this compilation combines the 1957 album *round about midnight* by miles davis and the 1963 *miles* by the new miles davis quintet. two jazz masterpieces on 2x12 inch heavyweight 180 gram vinyl in gatefold sleeve.
