Album artwork for Miles Ahead by Miles Davis

This album set in motion the collaboration between Gil Evans and Miles Davis that would produce Porgy and Bess and Sketches of Spain. Columbia Records put them together even though they hadn't worked together since recording the critically admired but commercially unsuccessful sides that would later be issued as The Birth of the Cool. They also allowed Evans to assemble a 19-piece band for the recordings, at a time when big bands were far out of fashion.
