"... a pivot point in American jazz."
- All About Jazz

"... a landmark in jazz evolution ..."
- The Guardian

The title of this 1957 Miles Davis compilation album says it all: this marked the beginning of the cool jazz movement. These groundbreaking, experimental tracks were recorded over three sessions in 1949 and 1950 with an all-star lineup including unusual jazz instrumentation like the French horn and tuba.

"This instrumentation, coupled with the likes of Davis on trumpet, baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan, pianist John Lewis, alto saxophonist Lee Konitz and drummers Kenny Clarke and Max Roach, created a warm, relaxed, albeit 'cool' sound that would become the standard for West Coast jazz."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
