Cat. no: 170035
Release Date: 19th March 2021
Deluxe digipak with 20-page booklet and additional line notes by Penguin Guide to Jazz’s writer Brian Morton.
”So dubbed because these three sessions are where the sound known as cool jazz essentially formed, Birth of the Cool remains one of the defining, pivotal moments in jazz. This music is so inventive, it remains alluring even after its influence has been thoroughly absorbed into the mainstream” (Stephen Thomas
”What remains is one of the great records of modern jazz, music from a wide range of voices, marked by subtle polyphony, paired instrumental voices, a deliberate restraint of a kind not often encountered in jazz, which prizes energy. In fact, a shared masterpiece that has enjoyed a greater than usual mix of reactions. Like all iconic records, it needs to be heard, not talked about...The enchanted chemistry of these late 1940’s sessions has lost none of its unalterable magic.” - PENGUINE GUIDE TO JAZZ
