Product Description:
Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a
stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was
dazzlingly protean. To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz from the mid-'40s to the early '90s, since he was in the thick of almost every important innovation and stylistic development in the music during that period, and he often led the way in those changes, both with his own performances and recordings and by choosing sidemen and collaborators who forged new directions. It can even be argued that jazz stopped evolving when Davis wasn't there to push it forward.

Broadcast Sessions 1958-1959 is a major find for fans of the legendary Milestones LP. These recordings, some of them made only 6 weeks after completing those studio sessions, feature the complete or near complete Milestones Sextet on live renditions of such key Milestones cuts as Sid s Ahead, Straight No Chaser and Two Bass Hit.

The tracks on this collection were recorded at 4 separate live performances at venues in and around New York in 1958-59. Three were for the
Bandstand programme on the Mutual Radio Network at Birdland, The Spotlight and Café Bohemia, and one for Art Ford s Jazz Party TV show in Newark. This essential collector s item includes announcer intros and extended tracks with Davis' stellar re-formed quintet/sextet: John Coltrane (tenor sax), Cannonball Adderley (alto sax), Red Garland (piano), Paul Chambers (bass) and Philly Joe Jones (drums). Bill Evans was on piano for the May gig, and Jimmy Cobb on drums for the November and January dates. The TV show had a staggering expanded line-up including Gerry Mulligan (baritone sax) and Nat Adderley (cornet).

Highly regarded UK label Acrobat Music is launching its US operations on October 21st 2008 with this as well as other re-issues that offer high quality and excellent value. All of the Premier Collection titles are showcased in deluxe packages with unique, consistent packaging, which include o-cards, extensive liner notes and either a large number of tracks or lengthy play time. Acrobat will be establishing its presence as the premier independent re-issue label in the US through its distribution deal with TVT Distribution.
