On Friday, April 18, 2010, WKCR began broadcasting in stereo for the first time since 9/11. To celebrate this upgrade, this Sunday's Jazz Profiles surveyed the stereophonic recordings of Miles Davis, whose recordings highlight the best that stereo has to offer. We began with a look at Davis's collaborations with composer, conductor, and arranger Gil Evans (Miles Ahead, Porgy and Bess, Sketches of Spain), compared side-by-side with Davis's experiments with modal jazz with his first great sextet (Milestones, Kind of Blue). We then transitioned through the early sixties, tracing the formation of Davis's second great quintet (Seven Steps to Heaven). We then listened to a number of recordings from the second great quintet (Live at the Plugged Nickel, Sorcerer, Nefertiti) and then from his transition to his electric period (Filles De Kilimanjaro). Finally, we heard two recordings from Davis's electric period (In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew), ending our profile of the stereophonic music of Miles Davis.
