This was the album that introduced me to Jazz. It is "the" jazz album in my opinion. Perfect in every way

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.

My favorite Jazz artist. First time I heard this I thought "this is the best jazz has to offer" and despite may great jazz records by Mingus, Coltrane, Dave Brubeck, and others, this is still as good as it gets.
