Key tracks from four generations of Miles Davis

Jimmy Cobb: “So What,” from “Kind of Blue.” His elegant swing sets the tone for a masterpiece.

Sonny Fortune: “Zimbabwe,” from “Pangaea.” Fortune blows with the force to match one of Davis’s busiest rhythm sections.

Mike Stern: “Fat Time,” from “The Man With The Horn.” The young guitarist sounds fearless on Davis’s comeback.

Buster Williams: “Limbo (alternate take),” from “1965-’68: The Complete Columbia Studio Recordings.” Williams was in place to cut a single track with one of Davis’s greatest groups.
