Miles To Go

Happy Birthday, Miles Davis. He had a long career, and was a constant innovator, but if I had to pick his best period, it'd be the late 50s/early 60s, when he was still using all he'd learned from Bop but had simplified his sound (and hadn't yet gotten into fusion).

Of course, Kind Of Blue is the best-selling jazz album of all, so I'm not alone in this opinion.

Even at ten minutes, this cuts off a bit. If you want to hear the whole thing, let me suggest you buy the album.
