The Rebirth of Cool is a compilation album by American jazz musician, Miles Davis, released in 1957. Featuring unusual instrumentation and several notable musicians, the music consisted of innovative arrangements influenced by classical music techniques such as polyphony and marked a major development in post-bebop jazz.
Rebirth of Cool is the blending of these iconic art-forms, where jazz and hip hop collide in spectacular fashion. The Rebirth of Cool experience is delivered by a seven-piece band accompanied by a DJ to deliver an amazing live music experience. The sound of the band is influenced by the 60s jazz era, 90s hip hop and RnB, and the-now’s jazz/hip hop fusion. Rebirth of Cool is primarily known for its live performances.
