Cool Jazz, as it was called, occupied a very short time in jazz history, from about 1948 until the late ’50s. Here, an impressive cast of musicians (labeling themselves the Jazz Nonet), bring the style back alive, and take it into a new direction.

Three of the most influential tunes of the Cool Jazz era, combine with new works inspired by the original Miles Davis/Gil Evans creation, to create the ultimate Jazz Nonet.
