Birth of the Cool: Sophistication in surround sound for the jazz improviser.

If "Kind Of Blue" is the best selling jazz album of all time, then "Birth Of The Cool" is where it all started. Miles Davis' stellar nine-piece band used the mellow, lush, atmospheric arrangements of Gerry Mulligan and Gil Evans to change the direction of jazz. 

On 16 July 2017 Richard Ingham re-created the music with an all star band to rave reviews.
