Favorite Miles Davis album/track

He would have been 80 today.

I'll go with either Cookin' or Relaxin' (since everyone else will pick Kind of Blue), and "If I Were a Bell" from Relaxin'.

Although I've only put a small dent (4 albums) into his catalog, I'd have to pick Workin'. Based on that one, I've been curious about his other Quintet albums. One day I'll pick them up.

(Doo-Bop being my least favorite that I've heard)

Right Off from A Tribute to Jack Johnson. There are few tracks in music history I enjoy more.

Kind of Blue is my favorite album ever made so I'd have to pick something from that, probably "So What"

The only album I have is The Essential Miles Davis. Judging from my ratings, it looks like Compulsion is my favorite.

I don't really know any of them by name, though.

Album: Workin'
Boppin' track: "Ah-Leu-Cha"
Pretty track: "It Never Entered My Mind"

Also gotta say that Philly Joe Jones is a crazy-amazing drummer.

Personally, I loves me some Paul Chambers. Those bowed solos he would take were incredible.

Kind of Blue is a special album for me cause it turned me on to Jazz but my favorite MD album has to be Electric Shout. As for an individual track, I'll take Funky Tonk from Live Evil.

Hendrix died a week before he was scheduled to go into the studio with Miles Davis to record some music. I've got a lot of boots with "Jazzy" Hendrix and it's great stuff. If those two had played together it would have been amazing.

Miles Davis died in 1991. Do you mean Hendrix died a week before he would have recorded with Davis?

I personally swear by Sketches of Spain. That sunny brassy opening just gives me chills.
