EDITORS’ NOTES

Restless innovator that he was, Miles Davis could also be quite accessible. It didn't take a jazz diehard to be seduced by the moody late-night atmosphere on "So What," or by the majesty of his and John Coltrane's solos on "Someday My Prince Will Come." Representing the fusion era is "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down," with its slinky funk rhythms and John McLaughlin's daredevil guitar. Even his most pop-friendly track, a faithful take on Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time," features a haunting, romantic solo.

Interesting

It's missing his blue note years, but otherwise it's not that bad. I'd get the original albums if you're studying him properly, or if you're a more casual listener, there are better compilations out there.
