Ten of the Best Miles Davis Tracks
As my colleague Michael Cuscuna sagely pointed out about another recent list of Miles Davis albums, it’s hard to go wrong with any suggestion of recordings emanating from this artist. So here, in this list of ten “of the best” Miles Davis recordings compiled by Angus Batey in The Guardian, is a slew of tracks demanding repeated attention.
