Review by Chicapah
PROG REVIEWER
5 stars If you're a fan of Jazz Rock/Fusion but have never really explored the realm of Jazz itself because it seems way too old-fashioned and ancient to your ears then perhaps it's because you've never heard Miles Davis. If what really intrigues you about The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return to Forever and Weather Report is the complexity of how those unbridled, flying notes fit together in some magical way without your really having to understand all the "theory" behind it all then you'll probably dig Miles Davis. If you want to go back to the tail end of the 40s and the first months of the 50s when fearless jazz musicians were starting to change all the established rules, push the envelope of what was "acceptable" and knock down locked doors then "Birth of the Cool" is a great place to begin. A "birth," indeed!

Now, I'm no expert on modern jazz. Far from it. The closest I ever came to being in the presence of seriously dedicated jazz musicians was when I was lucky enough to draw the famous One O'clock Lab Band as my beat for the campus newspaper while attending The University of North Texas in the early 70s. (My job was to sit and listen to them rehearse. Tough assignment, I know!) But I know what I like and I've learned over the years that greatness has no age limits or boundaries. This incredibly talented nonet that Miles put together made music that moves and breathes on its own like some new organism that sprang up spontaneously from all the elements of the earth. If the opening track, "Move," doesn't make you stop what you're doing to listen in wide-eyed wonder to what these nine guys are creating and mixing together then you might as well give the album away. And don't be ashamed if that happens. These challenging multi-horn, piano, upright bass and drumkit arrangements ain't for everybody. The tunes are short by prog standards but they come off more as movements in a symphony than as individual pieces. There's also a real paradox going on here because, while the music is certainly difficult and complicated, there's a sense that the musicians are having the most relaxing, joyful time of their lives because they're finally getting to play what they want to play.

So if you think that music in the mid 20th century was all Glenn Miller, Doo Wop and Elvis then you may want to educate yourself by putting this inside your head. So many of the artists that pioneered the Jazz Rock/Fusion movement either performed with and/or were greatly inspired by Miles Davis that his well-deserved place on this respected progressive music website is a no-brainer. What's really "cool" about this album is that it is truly music for grownups that are still young at heart. It's playful yet it makes you think. A 5 star prog masterpiece from a long, long time ago.

4 stars This is pure jazz, at least the way I would expect it. Fitting for arriving midway through the 20th century Birth Of The Cool oozes class. Think of smokey hazy jazz nightclubs at 2AM and picture Miles Davis pushing out slick trumpet melodies with Barber (Tuba), Haig ( Piano) and Boyd ( Bass) adding gusto to the melee of sounds. There is nothing remotely progressive here, yet, but if you like the pure sound of jazz with distinct swing added then this is a definite must for any enthiusiasts. The album gets off to a slow start but starts picking up energy with ' Venus de Milo. Budo is also very pleasant on the ears as is Israel. The highlight for me is Rouge where there is perfect interplay between the musicians and noteworthy piano work by Al Haig. The last song is bizaar to say the least and the only track featuring vocals and seems oddly out of place. A landmark album by many for Miles Davis, this is an excellent album showcasing some great jazz.

3 stars |C+| Miles Davis' first true landmark in music history.

The album title says it all - Birth of the Cool was literally the birth of was music historians would dub as "cool jazz," a change that was desperately needed for the survival of jazz. Bebop, as awesome a style as it was for jazz, was probably also the least accessible in terms of popular appeal. Even the attempt of Bebop innovator "Dizzy" to make Bebop accessible to the public fell flat on its face, and jazz seemed to be loosing its audience for good. Mile's Davis changed all of that with this album, which combines the great soloist musicianship and sweeping technical ability of Bebop with the slower, more orchestrated "planned out" style of big band swing, creating a type of jazz that both musicians and audiences alike could appreciate, and itself was quite unique, and is the basis for the form that most classic jazz styled compositions take today - partially composed, partially soloist, with drum patters and walking bass underlying the various horn parts.

What I love, in fact borderline adore, about this album is the pure bliss that is created by the arrangements with all of the horn parts. Miles Davis is indeed one of the most brilliant composers of all time, and nothing shows the potential he would later tap into like this album. Everything is so catchy, so soothing to the ears, so pleasant, yet so exciting when it intends to be. Few arrangements of modern jazz rival what we have in almost every track here, it set the bar early on and jazz composers, even those of today, can only strive to come close to the colossal work that this is, as Mozart's works had done for classical music.

This a progressive album strictly in terms of musical development alone, less so in the sense of the obscurity and intellectualism that we find in truly progressive music. So this essential to the jazz fan alone, as those who are less than jazz enthusiasts may not find much value in this album in terms of metal stimulation, but merely a nice album to hear every once in a while. I for one am I jazz fan and LOVE this album, so I'd strongly recommend it to that crowd alone. For me, it's a solid B+; for this site, a C+; incredibly good, but not essential to your standard progger. If you love jazz, A+, go get this album now!
