AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

CEMA Special Markets' The Ballad Artistry of Miles Davis culls highlights from Davis' Capitol and Blue Note recordings, including "How Deep Is the Ocean?," "Venus de Milo," "It Never Entered My Mind," "Dear Old Stockholm," "Moon Dreams," "Autumn Leaves," "Yesterdays," and "I Waited for You." Jazz purists will have little interest in this, since they'll want the original sessions, but this is a good sampler for casual listeners who want the sweet, slow side of early Miles.
