4 stars I've been focusing on reviewing recordings from the unreleased albums list here at Prog Archives. The last thing we need is another review of Script For A Jester's Tear, or Kind of Blue for that matter. I wouldn't even want to read my OWN reviews of these classic albums! I love Miles, especially before the mid 1960's, so I picked Classics in Jazz Part I. This album is apparently one of the recordings that was complied for the better-known Birth of the Cool release. Wikipedia has some good information on The Birth of the Cool, but information about this release is a little hard to find.

I think this is a terrific record. All the songs are enjoyable, and the instrumental performance are justifiably famous. With only four songs, it's hard to go wrong. I think Classics in Jazz Part I would be a good place for anyone who is just starting to listen to Miles. This is Davis at his most accessible. If your looking for Jazz Fusion, which would be the main focus of this website, this is not even in the same ballpark. Classics in Jazz Part I is on the borderline between bop and cool jazz. However, this is some very enjoyable Miles Davis.
