Jay Phelps Sextet
Jay Phelps has curated an exceptional show that brings together the best of Miles Davis from 1958 and 1959.
Prior to the release of Kind of Blue, the best-selling jazz album of all time, Miles was busy in the studio, working with the same line-up of musicians: (Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb). In 1958, the year before Kind of Blue, the album called ’58 Miles was released and set the stage for the birth of the world’s greatest jazz album of all time the following year. These albums defined the ground-breaking approach to the art of improvisation.
