Miles Davis – Godchild (1949)

Recorded in NY, 1949, Godchild is the first track on side B on the album Birth of the Cool by Miles Davis.

Birth of the Cool remains one of the defining, pivotal moments in jazz. This is where the elasticity of bop was married with skillful, big-band arrangements and a relaxed, subdued mood that made it all seem easy, even at its most intricate. After all, there’s a reason why this music was called cool; it has a hip, detached elegance, never getting too hot, even as the rhythms skip and jump. [source]
