Miles Davis deluxe box sets and the most extensive-ever CD release
Thursday 14 October 2010
For the ultimate collector, a deluxe 43-CD package,
The Genius of Miles Davis, presents a comprehensive collection of music from the legendary jazz artist Miles Davis, to be released October 26 and not available through regular retail.
Eight box sets document 384 recordings covering the artist's body of work recorded for Columbia Records between 1955-1985. Each set features music reflecting each of the musical icon's movements - with John Coltrane, Gil Evans, Jack Johnson sessions as well as the Miles Davis Quintet.
A full-size Martin trumpet case contains the CDs, plus previously unreleased and remastered music. Other items in the custom-designed Grammy award-winning package include an exact replica of the musician's Gustat Heim trumpet mouthpiece, a never-before-released art lithograph by the "Picasso of Jazz," essays, rare images, and an exclusive T-shirt.
The limited edition of 1,955 copies of The Genius of Miles Davis is priced at $749 for advance orders.
