But Miles Davis knew better. The trumpeter (whose Birth of the Cool sessions of 1949-1950 proved to be incredibly influential) was smart enough to realize that cool jazz and hard bop were equally valid parts of the house that Charlie Parker built, and he had no problem working with cool jazzmen one minute and hard boppers the next. Recorded for Charles Mingus' Debut label in 1955, Blue Moods is an excellent example of cool jazz. However, not all of the musicians who join Davis on this album were full-time members of jazz's cool school.

LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Miles Davis Format: Vinyl. This album is interesting for a number of reasons. Foremost, the ensemble is odd for what Davis was doing in this period. I actually cannot think of a time when he included both a trombone and a vibraphone. The trombone makes sense because it matches the lower registers which Davis had a penchant for (as well as the minor keys he also seemed to favor. Plus Charles Mingus - both bassist on this album and co-owner of the Debut label that published this album - seemed to favor trombones.
