''Miles Ahead'' is a jazz album by Miles Davis that was released in 1957 under Columbia label as CL 1041. This was the first album following ''Birth of the Cool'' that Davis recorded with Gil Evans, with whom he would go on to release albums such as ''Porgy and Bess'' and ''Sketches of Spain''. Gil Evans combined the ten pieces that make up the album in a kind of suite, each following the preceding one without interruption. Davis is the only soloist on ''Miles Ahead'', which also features a prominent horn section.

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 originally was produced in mono makes these inserted over-dubbings rather obvious in the new stereo setting. - Wikipedia
