Miles Davis’s Moon Dreams Gets Video


Miles Davis’s “Moon Dreams” from The Complete Birth of the Cool Collection gets a video. The set was released in June and it was designed to honor the 70th anniversary of Davis’s Birth of the Cool recording sessions which are regarded as his first career breakthrough. The video for “Moon Dreams” is influenced by Davis’s personal sketches and New York City at night through every era of jazz. The recording sessions for the Birth of the Cool took place in 1949-50 and were released in 1957. This period of Davis’s career is noted for creating cool jazz and helping the genre move away from bebop. Davis continues to influence music 28 years after his passing.
