O’s Notes: This celebration of Miles is well done, scanning classic jazz, bebop, cool jazz and fusion. The musicians are Mike Stern (g), Ron Carter (g), Jimmy Cobb (d) and George Coleman (sax). Yes, there’s no trumpet in this quartet but Mike and George handle the melodies in a way that does justice to these Davis tunes (or songs associated with Miles). Of the nine classics, we likes “Freddie Freeloader” and “Oleo” best. The sound, concept and execution are well done.
