“Miles Smiles” is an album recorded in October 1966 by the “second great” Miles Davis quintet recorded at Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City on October 24 and October 25, 1966.
It is the second of five albums recorded by this lineup, which featured saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and the astonishing drummer Tony Williams.
Stellar group improvisation from perhaps the greatest band of improvisers ever assembled. The album is considered by many critics to be the best the Davis ever recorded.
It should be rated among the mythical 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.
