Porgy & Bess (1958) is the interpretation of Gershwin's work by Miles Davis and composer Gil Evans, a point where the collaboration between the pair came to full fruition.  With Evans's intimate knowledge of Gershwin, and it's prime performer Davis, their renditions of the work was propelled into the musical stratosphere. 

Accompanied by fellow musicians Cannonball Adderley (alto sax), Paul Chambers (bass) and Jimmy Cobb (drums) this album is an essential for any serious Jazz collection! Now available in glorious mono.

“Davis’ trumpet work on Porgy and Bess reflects a man full of confidence who knows he is at the top of his game. Rarely did Davis ever play with such consistency . His up-tempo work is full of swagger, such as his hip, laid-back rendering of “Summertime” and the marvellous trumpet break at the end of the first chorus of “The Buzzard Song.” His ballad playing has his trademark warmth and depth of emotion, with Davis performing beautifully on “Oh Bess, Oh Where’s My Bess” and “I Loves You, Porgy,” for example…

Porgy and Bess is just one of many great albums that Miles Davis recorded over his lifetime. It reaches a higher plateau than most, though, in its way that it can reach the listener on both a musical and emotional level. That the album is still able to do this after almost forty-five years is a testament to the rare magic that occurred in a New York studio over four days in the summer of 1958.” – All About Jazz
