Porgy and Bess is a studio album by jazz musician Miles Davis, released in March 1959 on Columbia. Davis saw Russell's methods of composition as a means of getting away from the dense chord-laden compositions of his time, which Davis had labeled "thick". Modal composition, with its reliance on scales and modes, represented, as Davis put it, "a return to melody".

There is infinitely more happening on Porgy and Bess, however, with much of the evidence existing in the subtle significance of the hauntingly lyrical passages from Danny Banks' (alto flute) solos, which commence on "Fishermen, Strawberry and Devil Crab. Or the emotive bass and tuba duet that runs throughout "Buzzard Song. The impeccable digital remastering and subsequent reissue - which likewise applies to the Miles Davis & Gil Evans: The Complete Columbia Studio Recordings box set - only magnifies the refulgence of Porgy and Bess

This is a sublime recording, beautiful, spiritual, and uplifting. Miles paints a work of art with his trumpet and Gil Evans arrangements are just wonderful. Can't pick a favourite moment on this as it has to be listened to in its entirety and it's all quite brilliant.

It's seems as though during his lengthy golden age from mid-50's to the mid-70's, Miles Davis was was all but incapable of not producing a masterwork. Porgy and Bess, a landmark reinterpretation of the beloved George Gershwin opera in a jazz instrumental style that's a hybrid of third stream, hard bop, bebop (Gone is basically bebop), and cool jazz. Miles version of Porgy and Bess is a cinematic, theatrical stunner of a jazz album full of both melancholic and joyful drama and arguably his greatest third stream offering. Perhaps the only reason this record got overshadowed was that it came out in 1959, one of the greatest years in modern jazz history as it was the same year that gave us Kind of Blue, The Shape of Jazz to Come, and Time Out.
