Quiet Nights is a studio album by jazz musician Miles Davis, and his fourth album collaboration with Gil Evans, released in 1964 on Columbia Records, catalogue CL 2106 and CS 8906 in stereo. Recorded mostly at Columbia's 30th Street Studios in Manhattan, it is the final album by Davis and Evans

Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. He is among the most influential and acclaimed figures in the history of jazz and 20th century music. Davis adopted a variety of musical directions in a five-decade career that kept him at the forefront of many major stylistic developments in jazz.

Davis and Evans worked up an arrangement of the second movement for trumpet rather than guitar: its ubiquity as a piece for brass bands today underlines how influential this reading would become. 5. Yesterdays (Live at the Plugged Nickel). The album the quintet cut during the first studio visit after the Plugged Nickel shows, Miles Smiles, wrings every last drop of creativity out of a band relishing newly unleashed senses of purpose and possibility. The sessions were quick: a few minutes’ rehearsal, then one live take.

But Evans, who first worked with Davis on the 1949-50 milestone project Birth of the Cool, was that rare figure in Davis’ musical life, a kindred spirit and creative equal. The elegant lyricism and gently emphatic force of Evans’ orchestral voicings on Miles Ahead, Porgy and Bess and the flawless Sketches of Spain inspired some of the trumpeter’s most acute and dynamic improvisations.
