Miles Davis' Greatest Hits

Miles Davis' Greatest Hits

Like most jazz artists, Miles Davis isn't particularly well-served by a greatest-hits collection, since their brevity and haphazard sampling tends to obscure the scope and depth of his artistry. Nevertheless, Greatest Hits works better than expected, featuring such classics as "All Blues," "Someday My Prince Will Come," "Walkin'," "E.S.P.," "'Round Midnight," and "So What." These tracks might not fully capture the essence of Miles' Columbia records -- and it doesn't necessarily function as a good introductory sampler, since it's presented out of chronological order and his music works better in the context of its original session -- but the music itself is wonderful.
