MILES DAVIS : A JAZZ GIANT
”Miles hangs back while drummer Jimmy Cobb and bassist Paul Chambers (out of frame) play. It was only May of 1958, but the year was shaping up to be a busy one for Davis: Weeks earlier he had finished recording Milestones, a classic work signaling new stylistic directions, and by July he’d begin the sessions for the Porgy and Bess soundtrack. At this pivotal moment, however, Davis was cementing a new iteration of his sextet — including not only Coltrane, Cobb, and Chambers, but also alto saxophonist Julian “Cannonball” Adderley and pianist Bill Evans. Less than two weeks after this photo was taken, that astonishing lineup would begin recording 1958 Miles, and by the following March they were at work on the magisterial Kind of Blue .”
