The definitive audio companion to the critically-acclaimed new documentary directed and produced by Stanley Nelson, the soundtrack is an essential Miles Davis playlist for seasoned fans and new listeners alike, lovingly curated by the director and paired with short audio excerpts from the film for a unique listening experience. It brings together recordings and performances spanning labels and the artist’s musical evolution–from “Donna Lee” (a 1947 Savoy master take with legendary alto saxophonist Charlie Parker) to “Moon Dreams” from the groundbreaking 1949 Capitol sessions that were ultimately collected on the album Birth Of The Cool, through the seminal 1950s pieces for Columbia that revolutionized the worlds of jazz and popular music (including “Generique,” Miles’ improvised soundtrack to Louis Malle’s “Elevator to the Gallows” as well as tracks from Miles Ahead and, of course the most popular jazz album of all time, Kind of Blue). The album also highlights Miles’s evolution in the 1960s with tracks from Sketches of Spain and Someday My Prince Will Come to his iconoclastic invention of electric jazz/fusion (exemplified in a 45rpm single edit of “Miles Runs the Voodoo Down” from Bitches Brew). Finally it documents his triumphant mid 1980s comeback (1986 s “Tutu”), while premiering a brand-new track, “Hail To The Real Chief.” The new track features unreleased Miles Davis studio trumpet performances combined with music written by Lenny White, produced by White and Vince Wilburn, Jr and featuring an all-star collection of Miles band alumni and acolytes including White, Wilburn, Marcus Miller, Emilio Modeste, Jeremy Pelt, Antoine Roney, John Scofield, Bernard Wright, and Quinton Zoto.

For hardcore Miles Davis fans, the interest of this album Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool will primarily lie in the 28th track, a previously unreleased song Hail To The Real Chief. For everybody else, this is the soundtrack to the documentary that filmmaker Stanley Nelson dedicated to the most famous jazz legend, a sort of ‘best of’ compilation interspersed with work from other musicians that have worked with him in the past… It’s difficult to encapsulate the art of his genius in a single opus, but novices to Davis’ work (if there are any left) can start their homework with this selection which goes from Donna Lee with Charlie Parker (1947) to Tutu with Marcus Miller (1986), via staples like ’Round Midnight (1957), Ascenseur pour l’échafaud (1958), So What (1959), Someday My Prince Will Come (1961) and Footprints (1967). Produced by Lenny White and Vince Wilburn Jr., this funky original work blends parts written by Miles with music written by White and interpreted by Bernard Wright (keyboard), Marcus Miller (bass), John Schofield (guitar), Lenny White (synth), Jeremy Pelt (trumpet), Vince Wilburn Jr. (drums), Quintin Zoto (guitar), Emilio Modeste (saxophone) and Antoine Roney (saxophone). – Clotilde Maréchal
