180-GRAM BLUE VINYL

CONTAINS NEW SPECIALLY PREPARED LINER NOTES BY PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ’s WRITER BRIAN MORTON AND BY PARIS' PRESTIGIOUS JAZZ MAGAZINE

“It is, put simply, one of the very greatest modern jazz albums. Play it back to back with the fabled Kind of Blue and to an entirely unprejudiced audience, if you can find one, and it yields not a whit in quality or musical depth. Miles was beginning to explore the deeper implications of modality, which freed jazz from the tyranny, as it had begun to seem, of harmonic “changes”. Pianist Red Garland’s studio walk-out made things easier for the leader. Working without the piano’s finger-wagging in the corner was liberating.” - Penguin Guide to Jazz

Milestones is a revealing title! In addition to a clever pun on a first name that is enough to recognize the monumental trumpeter, it also says a lot about what this essential album represents: a milestone, a decisive step in a journey of which he was about to reach one of its peaks.” - Jazz Magazine
