Miles Ahead is a jazz album by Miles Davis released in 1957. This was the first album after Birth of the Cool that Davis recorded with Gil Evans, with whom he would go on to release albums such as Porgy and Bess and Sketches of Spain.

So realistically speaking, once you are done reading the basics, all you have to do is practice the language as much as you can.
