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/Qobuz

Album Description

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).

Santana: The Tijuana Lizard

Santana’s CV boasts an iconic Woodstock performance, a dozen Grammy Awards, millions of record sales (thanks to his metamorphosis into a Latin pop star), and more and more prestigious collaborations... He’s one of those artists that everyone loves - peers, public and critics alike. Here, we explore the life of an accomplished artist who is constantly renewing himself, much like a lizard shedding its skin.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.
