The release of the movie MILES AHEAD, Don Cheadle’s wildly entertaining and moving exploration of Miles Davis, will be accompanied by this new soundtrack featuring musical highlights from Miles’ career and new recordings overseen by Grammy Award-winning jazz/hip-hop artist Robert Glasper.
This is a perfect primer on Davis’ career for the new fan and a brilliant audio keepsake of the film for those who’ve studied his works inside and out. The album features 11 tracks from across Miles’ catalogue from 1956 to 1981, select dialogue from the film featuring Cheadle in character, and five original compositions written, co-written, produced or performed exclusively for MILES AHEAD by Robert Glasper. These cues include “What’s Wrong with That?” a jam that closes the movie imagining Cheadle as Miles playing in the present day with guest performers Glasper, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Gary Clark, Jr. and Esperanza Spalding; plus “Gone 2015,” an end-credits song featuring guest verses from rapper Pharoahe Monch. Cheadle also pens new liner notes for the album discussing the selection and creation of the songs on the soundtrack.

Miles Davis - Cookin' With The Miles Davis Quintet (1957/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Artist: The Miles Davis Quintet
Title: Cookin' With The Miles Davis Quintet
Genre: Jazz, Bop, Post Bop, Hard Bop, Trumpet Jazz
Label: © Prestige Records/Concord Music Group
Release Date: 1957/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC 2.0 Mono 44,1kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 34:04
Recorded: October 26, 1956 at Rudy Van Gelder Studio, Hackensack, NJ
Remastered: 2006, Rudy Van Gelder at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ

Cookin' With the Miles Davis Quintet is the first of four classic albums that emerged from two marathon and fruitful sessions recorded in 1956 (the other three discs released in Cookin's wake were Workin', Relaxin' and Steamin'). All the albums were recorded live in the studio, as Davis sought to capture, with Rudy Van Gelder's expert engineering, the sense of a club show · la the Café Bohemia in New York, with his new quintet, featuring tenor saxophonist John Coltrane. In Miles's own words, he says he called this album Cookin' because "that's what we did-came in and cooked." What's particularly significant about this Davis album is his first recording of what became a classic tune for him: "My Funny Valentine." Hot playing is also reserved for the uptempo number "Tune Up," which revs with the zoom of both the leader and Trane.

"I was the engineer on the recording sessions and I also made the masters for the original LP issues of these albums. Since the advent of the CD, other people have been making the masters. Mastering is the final step in the process of creating the sound of the finished product. Now, thanks to the folks at the Concord Music Group who have given me the opportunity to remaster these albums, I can present my versions of the music on CD using modern technology. I remember the sessions well, I remember how the musicians wanted to sound, and I remember their reactions to the playbacks. Today, I feel strongly that I am their messenger." --Rudy Van Gelder

Miles Davis - Collectors' Items (1956/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Artist: Miles Davis
Title: Collectors' Items
Genre: Jazz, Bop, Hard Bop, Trumpet Jazz, Cool Jazz
Label: © Prestige Records/Concord Music Group
Release Date: 1956/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC 2.0 Mono 44,1kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 43:32
Recorded: January 30, 1953 (#1-4) WOR Studios, New York City and March 16, 1956 (#5-7) at Van Gelder Studio in Hackensack, NJ
Remastered: 2008, Rudy Van Gelder at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ

Any 1950s Miles Davis recording could easily be called a “collector’s item,” but these selections have special claims to this description. The first four offer Charlie Parker in his only recordings in support of Miles, who had begun his disc career as Bird’s sideman. The last four feature a unique Davis/Mingus encounter. In between is Miles just before launching his first great Quintet, heading two groups loaded with top talent of the “post-bop” period.

Title: Bags' Groove

Label: © Prestige Records/Concord Music Group
Release Date: 1957/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC 2.0 Mono 44,1kHz/24bit

Bag's Groove was recorded in 1954 for Prestige Records but was not released until 1957. Most of the album was recorded on June 29, 1954, but the title track was recorded at one session on December 24 of the same year. Several of the tracks on the album were written by Sonny Rollins and would go on to become jazz standards in their own right.

"I was the engineer on the recording sessions and I also made the masters for the original LP issues of these albums. Since the advent of the CD, other people have been making the masters. Mastering is the final step in the process of creating the sound of the finished product.
