“Miles Ahead” is a jazz album by Miles Davis released in 1957. This was the first album after “Birth of the Cool” that Davis recorded with Gil Evans, with whom he would go on to release albums such as “Porgy and Bess” and “Sketches of Spain”.
Miles was reportedly unhappy about the album’s original cover, which featured a photo of a young white woman aboard a sailboat. For later releases of the record, the original cover-photo has been substituted by a photo of Miles Davis.
