Miles Davis created just one studio album with his original sextet: Milestones. And he made every moment count. Pairing with Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones, Davis not only laid the groundwork for the modalism that immediately followed but tailored a genuine modern-jazz masterwork laden with explosive performances. Sandwiched between the more famous ‘Round About Midnight and the epochal Kind of Blue, Milestones remains a seminal work of art.

Sourced from the Dolby SR analog master created from the original mono master tapes and pressed at RTI on dead-quiet SuperVinyl, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered-edition 180g LP grants each musician their own space amid broad soundstages. Afforded the benefits of a nearly non-existent noise floor and supreme groove definition, this vinyl reissue doubles as a time machine back to the February-March 1958 recording sessions.
