It's kinda depressing for a music forum to be proud of not knowing musicians.

I'll go with these two, and add "Nuit Sur Les Champs-Élysées," the theme from his soundtrack to Ascenseur pour l'Échafaud (Elevator to the Gallows). It's a great, moody piece of noir, that is incredibly evocative and has, well, Miles Davis on it.

Of course, I could also easily pick something off Miles Smiles...

how to choose?

Milestones (Milestones)
Gone (Porgy & Bess)
Surrey With The Fringe On Top (Steamin..)

and yet that includes nothing from Kind of Blue, In A Silent Way, Seven Steps To Heaven, Sketches of Spain and so many others.
