MUS 2663 June 25, 2007 Listening Assignment #3 The CD I choose is Birth of the Cool by Miles Davis. The CD was originally released in January 21, 1949 but the original recording was remastered and released in January 9, 2001 by Blue Note Records. The CD consisted of 12 tracked entitled “Move,” “Jeru,” “Moon Dreams,” “Venus De Milo,” “Budo,” “Deception,” “Godchild,” “Boplicity,” “Rocker,” “Israel,” “Rouge,” and “Darn That Dream.” Birth of the Cool was extremely melodic and seemed to be one of the more brilliant pieces of work Davis has composed. This remastered disc has impeccable sound quality, it does not even sound remastered. The performers include Miles Davis (Trumpet and Lead), Kai Winding, J.J. Johnson on trombone, Junior Collins and Sandy Siegelstein on the French horn, John Barber (tuba), Lee Konitz (alto sax), Gerry Mulligan (baritone sax), Al Haig and John Lewis on piano, Joe Shulman, Al McKibbon, and Nelson Boyd on bass, Kenny Clarke and Max Roach on the drums, and Kenny Hagood with vocals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
