I think no collection of music has ever been so flawless. This is musical perfection that Ii never will tire of hearing.

Not much to say that hasn't already been said. The best-selling mainstream jazz album ever. When I worked in a jazz record store, this is the record we always recommended to jazz newbies. Essentially an all-star jazz group, though with Miles and his band leading magic at the helm.

Possibly my second favourite jazz album, after TBSATSL. Actually tied with A Shape of Jazz to Come probably... Changed the history of music.

Dissenting opinion here.
Great jazz album? Undoubtedly.
Best ever? Not even close.

I do love the contributions from Coltrane and Cannonball. Bringing both of them into this effort was brilliant. And Bill Evand too? Waht a critical mass of talent! The album is marvelous, unique, groundbreaking, seminal; all those things. But there are still many I rank above it, including some from Miles' own catalog.

Never fails to move me, it is soothing one day, invigorating the next, never get bored of it. Miles Davis does this: he puts tracks down that seem to evolve as you do. Stunning album from a genius, every track shines brightly. The word "Cool" should have been birthed with this album.
