Playlist | The Complete Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool Soundtrack

All of the songs heard in the new Miles Davis documentary film by Stanley Nelson airing on American Masters on PBS on February 25 at 9PM. Also includes the brand new recording “Hail To The Real Chief.”

Miles’s bold disregard for tradition, his clarity of vision, his relentless drive, and constant thirst for new experiences made him an inspiring collaborator to fellow musicians and a cultural icon to generations of listeners. It made him an innovator in music—from bebop to “cool jazz,” modern quintets, orchestral music, jazz fusion, rock ‘n’ roll, and even hip-hop.
