Jazz: Miles and Miles and Miles ...

"You get the right guys to play the right things at the right time and you got a motherfucker," Miles Davis said of the highly innovative and cohesive quintet he led between 1964 and 1968. Now comes the definitive collection of this period of his intense musical growth: The Miles Davis Quintet, 1965-68: The Complete Columbia Studio Recordings.

Cecil prepared for Sunday best

Three of this year's Classic winners were on view at Ascot a year ago in the two two-year-old highlights on today's card.
