What is cool? At its very essence, cool is all about what’s happening next. In popular culture, what’s happening next is a kaleidoscope encompassing past, present and future: that which is about to happen may be cool, and that which happened in the distant past may also be cool. This timeless quality, when it applies to music, allows minimalist debate – with few ... Read more in Amazon's Miles Davis Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Miles, Max Roach, Chet Baker-all in one day! January 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
All of the music on this CD comes from a single night (Sept 13, 1953) at the Lighthouse Jazz club in Hermosa beach Ca. Oh, to have been there that day!

Without the Cd in front of me, I can't recall exactly who was in this edition of the basic band of this version of Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars, but to West Coast jazz fans probably all of the names will be familiar.

During this period, Max Roach was actually the bands house drummer, which was a bit of a shock to me. He only stayed for a couple of months before moving back to New York, but his inclusion here is a real plus for me-since i'm a fan of his solo percussion pieces, and one of them "Drum Conversation" is here (it was the last song played at the set that featured Miles).

Had I known their was a solo drum vehicle for Max Roach on this CD I would have purchased it even sooner.

Miles only performed 3 tracks that were taped that day (the first 3 tunes on the CD)-but it equals 30 minutes of music and is certainly worth owning.

The forth track is Roach's solo drum outing and the last track on this CD comes from the set that Chet Baker played earlier in the day.

This CD runs 39:39. This was originally released on vinyl back in 1985. This may account for the reason why more of Chet Bakers songs weren't included-since they were recorded, but the record label should have considered adding more of these tracks in on the CD reissue.

All the same it's incredible how good the recorded sound is, since, according to the liner notes, this was recorded not by professionals, but by a jazz fan(in mono)just by placing a microphone near the bandstand. I have to applaud the guy who designed the room then because the sound in there must really be something great.

While Miles had Stronger Material during this Era this is a Good Solid Disc.Round Midnight Sounds Good Here.Night in Tunisia Sounds Good but I Still Prefer Dizzy's Version Better.Good Musicianship here.

5.0 out of 5 stars One part of a gread day in Hermosa Beach November 5, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
This and the companion album recorded for a competing label (Contemporary) captures a magical September day in 1953. The companion album is titled Witch Doctor and is more focused on Chet Baker's performance that day.

The reason I have this album five stars, aside from the historic value and the superb playing, is the sound quality. It's not spectacular, but is surprisingly good for a live performance using 1953 recording technology and techniques. Listen to the sound samples and you will hear that the mix is very good - each instrument is where it should be - and the overall quality is more than adequate to enjoy this live performance.

The first three tracks are a continuation from the companion album I mentioned above. Miles seems to have taken over from Chet by accompanying Rolf Ericson on trumpet with Bud Shank on alto and baritone sax and Bob Cooper on tenor sax completing the front line. The rhythm section is Lorraine Geller on piano, Howard Rumsey on bass and Max Roach on drums.

On track 4 Max Roach treats to a four plus minute drum composition. I am not going to call it a solo because it has melodic qualities that Max perfected and is more focused on musical values than the bombastic showmanship most drummers display when given a solo spot.

The final track features Chet Baker backed by Russ Freeman on piano, Howard Rumsey on bass and Max Roach on drums.

This album was recorded for the Fantasy label at Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse Cafe in Hermosa Beach, CA on September 13, 1953. It's a rare glimpse into a West Coast institution (Rumsey's lighthouse) as well as a glimpse into the early and nascent years of West Coast jazz.

4.0 out of 5 stars Miles. March 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This isn't the greatest Miles CD, but "Round Midnight" and "A Night In Tunisia" are good songs. Miles isn't at his best because of the drugs he had been taking, but he still does a good job. This CD also includes solos by Max Roach and Chet Baker.
