Going to exclude Kind of Blue because it would comprise about half the list. This list changes all the time because there's so much of Miles to love.


"Boplicity," Birth of the Cool

"Springsville," Miles Ahead


"Lazy Susan," Volume One (Blue Note)

"The Man I Love (Take 2)," Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants

"Milestones," Milestones


"So Near, So Far," Seven Steps To Heaven

"Teo," Someday My Prince Will Come

"If I Were A Bell," Relaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet


"Trane's Blues," Workin' With The Miles Davis Quintet

"Summertime," Miles & Quincy Live At Montreux

You'll have plenty of great material to mine. I'm not big on Miles' electric/fusion stuff but there's no doubt that it is essential to both Miles' canon and the jazz canon as a whole. So feel free to sample Miles' stuff, after the late 60s, including Bitches Brew and On The Corner.

Can't name you 10 tbh, as I'm still not that knowledgeable about his music although I plan to change that. But, In A Silent Way is one of my fave songs of all times. Such a beautiful meditative piece of music.
