Porgy and Bess album for sale Product Description



Porgy and Bess album for sale by Miles Davis was released Apr 05, 2010 on the Not Now Music label. Of all Gil Evans' orchestral scores for soulmate Miles Davis, PORGY AND BESS is his richest and most ambitious--a watershed of modern jazz harmony which served to secure Davis' pop star stature and define his brooding mystique. Inevitably, even non-jazz listeners own a copy of PORGY AND BESS or SKETCHES OF SPAIN. Like MILES AHEAD, Evans' band on PORGY AND BESS de-emphasized the traditional reed section in favor of a tuba, three French horns, two flutes and two saxophones. Porgy and Bess CD music The resulting chords and overtones are dark, alluring and mysterious. Thus the opening brass-cymbal bluster of "The Buzzard Song" gives way to a mid-eastern carpet of flutes and deep brass as Davis' poignant trumpet speaks in split tones and yearning cadences, bursting with blues feeling; a tuba soon picks up the theme as muted trumpets are followed by tolling trombone/French horn chords. Porgy and Bess CD music contains a single disc.   ...See Full Description

My Favorite Jazz Album of All Time
Porgy and Bess album for sale Dramatic, expansive and melodic: a work that blends the best of cool jazz and bop without straying too far into the territory of frenzied solos and modal scales. Along with Kind of Blue and Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, among the greatest jazz albums of all time. Miles' melody lines, tone and phrasing, together with Gil Evans' arrangements, are what jazz is all about.
