Lab Overview

Originally released in 1957, Birth of the Cool compiles 11 songs recorded by Miles Davis and his cohort of musicians (they together through experiments / rehearsals at arranger Gil Evans’ New York apartment) between 1949 and 1950. It’s an influential LP that marks a major development in post-bebop, namely, as the title of the album implies, the birth of cool jazz. Musicians that took part in the 12-tracker are Lee Konitz, Gerry Mulligan, Al McKibbon, Max Roach, Al Haig and more, and some of the compositions included are “Jeru,” “Move,” “Boplicity,” “Budo,” and “Moon Dreams.”
