Audiophile Grade 180 Gram Pure Virgin Vinyl! Newly Remastered Classic Jazz Album, One Time Pressing Limited Collector's Edition!

On their second conceptual album together, Miles Davis and arranger Gil Evans offered up a profound reinterpretation of George Gershwin's famed opera Porgy and Bess. A landmark release in orchestral jazz and arguably the best of their many collaborations, Evans’ adaptation of Gershwin’s score here is a veritable tour de force and although the outing features strong performances from Cannonball Adderley (alto sax), Paul Chambers (bass) and Jimmy Cobb (drums), Davis' poignant trumpet playing is the unequivocal star. Transcendent material like "Summertime" and "I Love You Porgy" display the true beauty of Miles Davis and Gil Evans' collective genius, their ability to reach the listener on not only a musical level but an emotional one as well.

Recorded in New York, July-August, 1958.
