Appreciating Jazz Part 10 – Cool Jazz

In the 1950s a number of jazz musicians began reacting to the hot approach of bebop and began toning down their music.  Taking their cue from Miles Davis’s album, The Birth of the Cool, many players began to perform and record in a similar approach, sometimes borrowing elements from classical music as well.  This podcast covers some of the most influential musicians of cool jazz.
