About this item

Eleven tracks recorded by Miles Davis' nonet in 1949 and 1950, 'Birth Of The Cool' may just be the most accurately titled album ever. The tracks just bleed hipness - cool, smooth, and swinging - and practically define the genre of "cool jazz". Unparalleled recordings required for any fan of mid-century American jazz.
