About this album

Milestones is an album recorded in February and March 1958 by Miles Davis. It is renowned for including Miles’ first forays into the developing modal jazz experiments, as noticed on the piece “Milestones” (not to be confused with “Miles”, recorded by Davis in 1948), which would be followed to its logical conclusion on Kind of Blue. It was also the last time the rhythm section of Jones, Garland and Chambers would ever play with Miles on record.

Coltrane’s return to Davis’s group in 1958 coincided with the “modal phase” albums: Milestones and Kind of Blue (1959) are both considered essential examples of 1950s modern jazz. Davis at this point was experimenting with modes—i.e., scale patterns other than major and minor.
