Birth Of The Cool is a compilation album by American jazz musician Miles Davis, originally released in February 1957 via Capitol Records.

Birth Of The Cool remains one of the defining, pivotal moments in jazz. This is where the elasticity of bop was married with skillful, big-band arrangements and a relaxed, subdued mood that made it all seem easy, even at its most intricate.

After all, there's a reason why this music was called cool; it has a hip, detached elegance, never getting too hot, even as the rhythms skip and jump.

The most remarkable thing about these sessions - featuring such heavy-hitters as Kai Winding, Gerry Mulligan, Lee Konitz, and Max Roach - is that they sound intimate, as the band never pushes too hard, never sounds like the work of nine musicians. Furthermore, the group keeps things short and concise, which keeps the focus on the tones and tunes.

The virtuosity led to relaxing, stylish mood music as the end result, but this music is so inventive, it remains alluring even after its influence has been thoroughly absorbed into the mainstream

Check out the tracks: “Move”; “Deception” and “Moon Dreams”.

This LP record is a "Back to Black" series reissue (October 2016) on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl in mono with a digital download code, pressed in Europe.
