Miles at his height in the '50s before jazz took another turn, Milestones
(Columbia, 1958) wasalong with the other Miles records of this periodreally at the height of the elegant era of jazz. Then it went somewhere else that was equally amazing.
But I really love the combination of soulfulness and intelligence with which these guys playedJohn Coltrane
and Red Garland
, Paul Chambers
, Philly Joe Jones
, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley
and Miles. Just an unbelievable group, and Philly Joe and Paul Chambers, they're just killin' on this record.
