Landmark 1946 Historical Release Documents Miles Davis’ First-Known Instance of Open-Voiced Trumpet Playing at One of His Earliest Sessions

One of Miles Davis’ earliest recording sessions.


The very first known instance of the famed trumpeter playing in an “open” style, and in a band with legendary tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons and drummer Art Blakey. Need any more be said? Very few jazz albums possess more historical importance and wow-inspiring significance than Bopping the Blues, which documents a 1946 session in which Davis supported a group and two singers, Earl Coleman and Ann Baker, in a splendid bop affair. Yes, it’s got that elusive Holy Grail quality.
