Album

The 2014 double-disc anthology Take Off: The Complete Blue Note Albums compiles tracks jazz trumpeter Miles Davis recorded for Blue Note Records during the '50s. These are recordings made after Davis left Prestige, but not including the 1949-1950 sessions later released as the classic 1957 album Birth of the Cool. Miles Davis recorded for Blue Note for only a very short tenure, from 1952-1954, but it was at a very important turning point in his personal and professional life. After an apprenticeship with Charlie Parker and a successful stint recording a little heard but ultimately very influential nonet, Davis, like so many of his peers, fell into the clutches of narcotics addiction. From this period, Davis kind of drifted before kicking his demons and returning triumphant. But that's not to say that he wasn't making good music in this period. 0 out of 5 stars Take Off: The Complete Blue Note Albums. Reviewed in Italy on October 18, 2015. Verified Purchase.

Conjulhala
Another of the Blue Note sessions (in this case, three sessions) in the annoyingly inaccessible Bluray format. A 2 CD set would have done nicely.This set contains a take each of "Chance It", "Enigma" and "Kelo" that are not on the 2001 U.S. RVG CDs. I don't consider that that makes it worth forking out for this Blueray disk. How many times would one actually play these takes? Once, maybe?The "Blue Train" and "Empyrean Isles" Blurays are definitely worth getting, if you have a friend who can access them for you. I was unable to hear the "Blue Train" one for several months.
It's 2017 buy a blu ray player! All these blue ray pure audio come with a convenient digital download. Best of both worlds. CDs are most inconvenient in today's world.
