Miles Davis

Porgy & Bess


digitally remastered cheap double cd set featuring 'borgy and bess' 'miles the new miles davis quintet' and 'blue haze' of all gil evans' orchestral scores for soulmate miles davis 'porgy and bess' is his richest and most ambitious a watershed of modern jazz harmony which served to secure davis' pop star stature and define his brooding mystique inevitably even nonjazz listeners own a copy of 'porgy and bess' or 'sketches of spain' like miles ahead evans' band on 'porgy and bess' deemphasized the traditional reed section in favour of a tuba three french horns two flutes and two saxophones the resulting chords and overtones are dark alluring and mysterious thus the opening brasscymbal bluster of 'the buzzard song' gives way to a mideastern carpet of flutes and deep brass as davis' poignant trumpet speaks in split tones and yearning cadences bursting with blues feeling a tuba soon picks up the theme as muted trumpets are followed by tolling trombone french horn chords
