All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Nine examples of Miles Davis caressing a ballad at a slow tempo are included on this 1999 CD, Love Songs. All of the music is easily available elsewhere, but it is interesting to hear the different approaches that the trumpeter could employ in sticking close to a lyrical melody.
