Along with their subsequent collaborations Porgy and Bess and Sketches of Spain , Miles Ahead is one of the most famous recordings of Third Stream , a fusion of jazz , European classical , and world musics. Evans combined the ten pieces that make up the album into a suite , each flowing into the next without interruption; the only exception to this rule was on the title track since it was placed last on side A this has been corrected on the CD versions.
Davis is the only soloist on Miles Ahead , which features a large ensemble consisting of sixteen woodwind and brass players. Art Taylor played drums on the sessions and the then current Miles Davis Quintet member Paul Chambers was the bassist. A fifth recording date involved Davis alone re- recording material to cover or patch mistakes or omissions in his solos using overdubbing.
The fact that this album was originally produced in mono makes these inserted overdubbings rather obvious in the new stereo setting. The Penguin Guide to Jazz gave Miles Ahead a four-star rating out of a possible four stars, and called the album "a quiet masterpiece Miles was reportedly unhappy about the album's original cover, which featured a photograph of a young white woman and child aboard a sailboat.
He made his displeasure known to Columbia executive George Avakian , asking, "Why'd you put that white bitch on there? For later releases of the record, however, the original cover-photo has been replaced by a photograph of Miles Davis. Jon Hendricks had been working on vocalizing Miles' parts on the album for over 50 years, and Pete Churchill, on hearing this, approached him to talk about developing it with ensemble the London Vocal Project. Together they finished scoring all the parts and writing the lyrics, for the band parts as well as for Miles, which the LVP then rehearsed extensively.
