Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Miles Davis was at the forefront of almost every major development in Jazz from World War II to the 1990s. In his career he touched on be-bop, cool jazz, modal jazz, funk, and on his last album, even hip-hop. Many leading jazz musicians made their names in Davis’ groups, including pianist Herbie Hancock and saxophonist John Coltrane. Outside of his genius as a musician, Miles was an iconic figure in terms of his personal style and his attitude and defined what ‘cool’ really was.
In light of the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘Kind of Blue’ which is regarded by many as one of the greatest records of all time, Supreme along with the Miles Davis Foundation, and Sony Music will re-release a Limited Edition series of three of Miles’ most influential records, marking three distinct moments in his musical evolution – Kind of Blue originally released in 1959, Nefertiti originally released in 1968, and On The Corner originally released in 1972. Each CD cover is a unique, exact replica of the original 12″ Album Cover. Each has been digitally remastered for superior sound, and includes bonus tracks as well as a custom sticker for each title. Along with these CDs Supreme will be releasing a group of Tees, one corresponding to each of the three albums.
Available at the NY and LA Supreme stores on November 6th and online on November 10th. Available in Japan store locations on November 8th and online on November 10th.
