Description

Birth of the Cool is a compilation album by American jazz musician Miles Davis, released in 1957 on Capitol Records. It compiles twelve tracks recorded by Davis's nonet for the label over the course of three sessions during 1949 and 1950. Featuring unusual instrumentation and several notable musicians, the music consisted of innovative arrangements influenced by classical music techniques such as polyphony, and marked a major development in post-bebop jazz. As the title implies, these recordings are considered seminal in the history of cool jazz. Most of them were originally released in the 10-inch 78-rpm format and are all approximately three minutes long. 01) MILES DAVIS - MOVE 02) MILES DAVIS - JERU 03) MILES DAVIS - MOON DREAMS 04) MILES DAVIS - VENUS DE MILO 05) MILES DAVIS - BUDO 06) MILES DAVIS - DECEPTION 07) MILES DAVIS - GODCHILD 08) MILES DAVIS - BOPLICITY 09) MILES DAVIS - ROCKER 10) MILES DAVIS - ISRAEL 11) MILES DAVIS - ROUGE 12) MILES DAVIS - DARN THAT DREAM
