Miles Davis masterfully moved through these genres of Jazz. Never one to stand still or get stuck in one place musically, the following videos are representative of the different styles of jazz. Miles was constantly reinventing himself. Traditionalists may argue if these are actually jazz compositions, but those that argue should know jazz has no limits.  

Miles Davis' first great quintet -So What  1959 - (more info below) 

  • The second song in this playlist is from Miles Davis album 'Kind of Blue' recorded in sessions from 1959 with Miles Davis – Trumpet John Coltrane - Tenor sax Bill Evans – Piano on "Flamenco Sketches" Wyn Kelly – Piano on "So What" Julian "Cannonball" Adderly –  Alto Sax, Paul Chambers – Bass, Jimmy Cobb – Drums.
  • Miles Davis' second great quintet  is the third song on this playlist. Footprints - with Wayne Shorter on tenor saxophone, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on Bass, and Tony Williams on drums.

Next up is Jazz Performances that have been recorded live for the most part featuring the John Coltrane Quartet - My Favorite Things - with Coltrane on soprano saxophone -  McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on Bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Following their set is a number of performances from Freddie Hubbard to Robert Glasper to Wynton Marsalis to Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. This playlist is constantly being updated, but Coltrane is always first. 

The Music of Herbie Hancock starts off with his 2007 Grammy for Best Album of Year River: The Joni letters performed by Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Corinne Bailey Rae. The 83 year old Hancock has been relevant and active on the jazz scene since the early 1960's and still is today.
