Miles Davis – Blue Haze (1956)

Another few days or weeks, another Miles Davis record. Since the beginning of lockdown I’ve made a good effort (considering how much other stuff there is to listen to) to go back and work through a fair chunk of this man’s discography. Truly, it can be intimidating in scope, so I’m glad I finally got to grips with it.

Blue Haze is a record from the classic era (I mean, isn’t it all classic? But still!) before Davis became engrossed in the wild experimentation and progression sides of jazz, he (and his band) performed fantastic little numbers like those present on this record. I’m no jazz expert, don’t get me wrong, but I have no complaints at all with this release.
