Birth of the Cool is the first important leader date from Miles Davis, one of jazz's most seminal figures and farsighted practitioners. Having made his reputation in large measure from playing with bop giant Charlie Parker, Davis confounded expectations when he embraced the "cool" arranging style of Gil Evans, an arranger for Claude Thornhill's band. Jazz went from extroversion to introversion to such an extent many groups seemed to play solely for themselves, helping gradually turn it from America's primary popular music into the corpse of today.

On 17 May, Blue Note/UMe will release The Complete Birth of the Cool, documenting the huge creative and cultural importance of the Miles Davis Nonet. The collection marks the 70th anniversary of the initial sessions for the ‘Birth of the Cool’ album, released in 1957 as a collection of recordings from 1949 and 1950. Published on. April 5, 2019. In his 1989 autobiography, he added: Birth was not only hummable but it had white people playing the music and serving in prominent role. e shook people’s ears a little softer than Bird or Diz did, took the music more mainstream. Miles Davis: The Complete Birth of the Cool.

It compiles eleven tracks recorded by Davis's nonet for the label over the course of three sessions during 1949 and 1950. Featuring unusual instrumentation and several notable musicians, the music consisted of innovative arrangements influenced by classical music techniques such as polyphony, and marked a major development in post-bebop jazz

Birth of the Cool is a cool jazz music boxset, compilation recording by MILES DAVIS released in 1956 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. This album was recorded on 1-21-1949 and 3-9-1950. The final track, "Darn That Dream" (the only song with vocals, by Hagood), was included with the other eleven on a 1971 LP. Thanks to snobb, js for the updates.
