Album artwork for Porgy & Bess by Miles Davis

The complete classic interpretation of George Gershwin's 'Porgy and Bess' opera by Miles Davis with the Gil Evans Orchestra (Columbia CS-8085, 1958) featuring a stellar cast of musicians that includes Johnny Coles, Cannonball Adderley, Jimmy Cleveland, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb & Philly Joe Jones. As a bonus, four extra tracks featuring Miles playing Gershwin tunes with jazz giants such as Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk and Milt Jackson have been added. Includes a 16-page comprehensive booklet. "The Inherent pensiveness of Gil Evans' writing and the introversion of Miles Davis' playing produce something akin to a gas flame turned as low as it can be without going out. Its heat is quiet, but very intense. The Davis-Evans relationship has again produced superb music." - ***** Gene Lees, DownBeat
