Sketches of Spain album for sale Product Description

Sketches of Spain album for sale by Miles Davis was released Aug 05, 2002 on the Sony Music label. The crown jewel of the epic Evans/Davis triptych that began with MILES AHEAD and PORGY AND BESS, SKETCHES OF SPAIN is as emotionally compelling as any performance in the trumpeter's remarkable body of works. Combining as it does the emotional gravity of two cultures--the deep song of flamenco music and the rich lament of the blues--SKETCHES OF SPAIN is a musical hybrid of enormous power and beauty. Sketches of Spain CD music contains a single disc with 5 songs.   ...See Full Description

a collaberation of geniuses
I first bought this record in 1963 in San Francisco after I had seen his group at the Blackhawk and was totally awestruck by this man. This joining of minds was a stroke of genious and it still fresh today.

His Best Ever
Miles Davis tells a story and paints a picture in every album. This one is his best ever. I took it to Spain and listened to it many times there. The music enhanced my visit there, and being there, enhanced the music. If you only have one album in your collection, this one is it.

Truly; Transporting
The combined "Blood, Sweat, and Tears" of Gil Evans and Miles Davis (along with the other important figures here)makes this album a excellent choice for any music library. Craig Mac.

It's Miles; It's Gil Evans; It's a Classic
A few extra tracks have been added since this was originally recorded and I program them out. However the 5 original tracks rate the 5 star essential classic jazz rating. It's a beautiful thing to hear. Miles is so smooth at this that it's difficult me me to know exactly when he's improvising and not doing so. Let me repeat. It's a beautiful thing to hear.

Classical and jazz in a 1959 blockbuster
Sketches of Spain was recorded in 1959, just a few months following the recordings for Kind of Blue. That was a great year for jazz. I still have my first stereo LPs of both albums and a copy still in wrappers, as well as the CD. The only deficiencies in the CD are the two alternate takes on Concierto de Aranjuez, but this does illustrate the difficulty level of the score by Gil Evans and the brilliant performance by Miles Davis in the originally released recording of Concierto. Of lesser importance, the inclusion of Song of Our Country in the CD (also not in the originally released version of Sketches) is at once puzzling - particularly in view of similar spanish-theme collaborations by Miles and Gil in the 1957 recording of Miles Ahead Miles Davis +19. It is difficult to choose a favorite of the five original tracks released in 1960, but the fifth track, Solea, is probably the most prominent following Concierto. At 43 years later, this music is still one of the most outstanding recordings of the past century and it represents a most successful confluence of jazz and classical genres. I listen to the CD often - even as background, but usuually sans the three extra tracks - and it still sounds like new music. The Gil Evans score is one of his best pieces of work, and the excellence of the orchestra is truly outstanding in this one-of-a-kind recording. Enjoy it with Kind of Blue.
