Jazz Vinyl Giveaway: Milestones by Miles Davis

Time for another Jazz Collector giveaway. Let’s go with another classic this time: Miles Davis, Milestones, Columbia 9428. This is a stereo pressing, a later pressing, not an original. It is, however, in near mint condition. I have it on the turntable now and I’d guess this is the first time it’s been played. Considering that it is marked as “electronically re-channeled for stereo” it sounds quite good actually. I’m listening now to Cannonball Adderley’s solo on the track “Miles,” which most of us think of as “Milestones.” Anyway, this is a great record, recorded a little before Kind of Blue, with much of the same band, although no Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly or Jimmy Cobb. This one features Miles and Adderley and John Coltrane, with Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. The tracks are Dr. Jekyll, Sid’s Ahead, Two Bass Hit, Miles, Billy Boy and Straight, No Chaser. We have one copy of this LP to give away and we will do son on Christmas Day, December 25. In order to be eligible to win this record all you have to do is comment on the Jazz Collector site somewhere, anywhere, between now and Christmas Day. If you’re a jazz collector and don’t have a copy of this record, well, you should. If you are a collector and already have a nice mono copy, here’s the possibility of a stereo to have as a spare.

  • “If you’re a jazz collector and don’t have a copy of this record, well, you should.”

    ready.

  • Not sure you qualify as a jazz collector if you don’t have this!

  • what a great album… I’m a huge fan of the post-bop open jazz–possibly the greatest short era of jazz (1959 was probably the capstone and true beginning of the best stuff, amen!). keep up the good work!
