The Morrison Hotel Gallery And Sony Music Entertainment's Icon Collectibles Announce "The Genius Of Miles Davis...The Columbia Years"
Miles Davis was at the forefront of virtually every major development in jazz from World War II through the 1990s. Following the March 1957 release of 'Round About Midnight,' his debut recording for Columbia Records, Davis went on to create an unbroken string of groundbreaking albums for the label, his musical home for more than 20 years. Among his monumental accomplishments during a phenomenally productive period on Columbia Records, Miles pioneered a post-bebop modal jazz with his 1959 masterpiece, 'Kind of Blue', still one of the most commercially and artistically successful jazz albums of all time and launched an ongoing musical revolution with a radical fusion of jazz, rock, funk, electronic and ambient elements on albums including 'In A Silent Way' (1969), 'Bitches Brew' (1970), and 'On The Corner' (1972).
During the last decade of his life and career, Miles Davis settled into the gravitas and enigma of his legend, creating some of the most elegant and powerful music of his career still generating challenging pivotal albums like "The Man With The Horn" (1981), "Star People" (1982), and the orchestral concept suite "Aura" (recorded 1985, released 1989). Charles Reilly's candid of Miles on-stage in 1982 is kinetic and elegiac, a portrait of genius in motion, hypnotically bending blue into magenta.
