Wynton had such an elegant swing style. He, Chambers, 'Trane and Cobb formed the backbone of the amazing music that came from Miles Davis in the late 50s/early 60s.

Yes he did! What's amazing is how Miles' birth of cool seemed to spontaneously generate Wynton's "successor" in the scheme of things, and a whole new style of quartal/pentatonic jazz piano, to almost an opposite extreme, McCoy Tyner!
My version of Lennie Tristano's "Scene and Variation":

Indeed. Wynton's playing proved that if you REALLY swing you have acheived the ultimate in jazz. To me, it's no less of an accomplishment than tranforming the music (like Bud Powell, Monk, McCoy, Bill Evans, or a handful of others have done). When it comes to pure swinging, a few greats are up there with Wynton but to my ear no one surpasses him.
