Marcus Miller: Miles Davis, Milestones

Miles at his height in the '50s before jazz took another turn, Milestones (Columbia, 1958) was—along with the other Miles records of this period—really 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 played—John 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.
