New Miles Davis Box Set Due

Columbia/Legacy will on Sept. 28 release Seven Steps to Heaven: The Complete Columbia Recordings of Miles Davis 1963-64, the seventh boxed set devoted to the late jazz trumpeter’s work for the label.

The seven-disc package will consider an important transitional period in Davis’ career. By 1963, his long-running rhythm section of pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb had dissolved; saxophonist John Coltrane, the star of Davis’ late-’50s quintet, had exited the band in April 1960 to lead his own group.
