Biography

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

The entire album is good listening and good music to live by.
Leslie D. White
And I absolutely love Miles' solo, the ultra hip and clever Horace Silver piano solo, and Blakey's wonderful rimshot groupings.

Anyway, worth the purchase for that one track, which is completely amazing.

I don't understand what the previous "reviewer" was talking about, that miles was playing it square here. This is a beautiful, relaxed album, and one of the only quartet recordings miles did. Plus, he plays the open trumpet on every tune. He made this album when he was waking up from his blue haze of heroin addiction, right before he went on to huge fame and success and you can hear all his new ideas formulating on this record. However, if you're only accustomed to later Miles Davis records where he was fueled by fiery tenormen like Shorter and Coltrane, then maybe it might sound too laid back for you. I dunno.

Yeah, we know Miles went through many phases and stages, but this is where I started with Miles after I initially heard "Sketches of Spain", then I went to "Round MidNight" with Coltrane, and then backwards to Mile's Charlie Parker days, then I went forward to "Live at the BlackHawk", then "Kind of Blue". Whew. That's alot of ground, but Miles was mercurial and great at everything he did, never stopping very long to smell a particular group of roses before moving on to the next challenge.

The 'Piece D'Resistance' here is the extended performance of "I'll Remember April". A huge, mind-opening performance!! Arrangement-wise (very uptempo & Native-American oriented), performance-wise, it's just wonderful, and I've listened to it for decades with the same wonder and enjoyment. Kenny Clarke's brushwork is too much, and Davey Schildkraut (alto) and Miles (muted trumpet) blow wonderful, inspired solos still fresh today; but Horace Silver's two piano solos steal the show and even his piano fills during the magnificent Percy Heath 'walking bass' section are exceptional. Worth the entire CD!! Don't miss this!

"Tune Up" and "Smooch" (with Mingus' amazing pianism and double stops) are also great, but another gem is "Four". Few times in the history of jazz music has so much wonderful stuff been done in so little time than on "Four". Totally mesmerizing. And I absolutely love Miles' solo, the ultra hip and clever Horace Silver piano solo, and Blakey's wonderful rimshot groupings. WOW!

AFTERTHOUGHT: The song "Tune Up" later received a legendary extended and wonderful performance by Sonny Rollins on The Very Best. Mingus also displays more of his piano work on his solo piano CD [Mingus Plays Piano]. Buy all three and enjoy the overlap.

I'm a jazz pianist. I still have the orignal LP of this, the first by Miles that I ever owned. Several of the hundreds of songs I know I learned from this album. It's a classic, with an enviable lineup of world-class musicians and first-rate, sensitive solos. It marks a time of extended transition for Miles between his bebop/cool beginnings and his later modal and post-bop periods.

Format: Audio CD
Taken from three distinct recording sessions - with bassist Percy Heath being the only consistent sideman - the album was released in 1954.

Featuring musicians like Kenny Clarke (d), Art Blakey (d), Horace Silver (p) and Charles Mingus (p), the material is from May 19, 1953; March 15, 1954 and April 3, 1954. The eight tracks clock in at 30:05, with Miles Ahead and the title track edging away from the tight pack of quality music.

The playing may not be fast and furious, but the sound is smooth as Miles is churning out cool grooves.

I have probably 25 Miles albums and have been listening to him for 30 years. Somehow I was reading on here and found out about the fact that this album had some tracks from an all start session in 1954 that were legendary. So I bought it and since then have been stupidly addicted to the track 'I'll Remember April,' which is not only wonderful to listen to, it will blow up most notions you have about the history of jazz. It's eerie anxiety sounds like the jazz of the early to mid 60s. The solo by David Schildkraut is seriously one of the most amazing sax solos ever (IMHO) and I had never even heard of the dude. (Mingus was once blindfolded at a radio station and asked to identify players from recordings and thought DS was Charlie Parker.) Anyway, worth the purchase for that one track, which is completely amazing. Oh, a friend of mine who is a jazz musician said when that track was finally released in the late 60s (was too long for a 50s album), everyone was trying to imitate it.

This album took eleven months and three sessions to capture, but captures Miles' flirtation with hard bop and transition to his more pensive 'Blue period'. For me personally this is the beginning of a window that would encompass my favorite Miles Davis albums. Other fans may have different periods, but for me it was the Prestige years and his subsequent Quintet period culminating in 1959. Of course that reflects my personal taste and is no reflection on Miles' continuing evolution and reinvention. However, my personal tastes aside, the sound samples on this page will tell you all you need to know about this album. Listen to those and let your ears guide you.

I mentioned that this album took three sessions. Here are the tracks, when and where they were recorded and by whom. The track sequence is not chronological, so I am going to provide the background info in track order.

Track 1 was actually the last one recorded. It was laid down in Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio on April 3, 1954. Miles is accompanied by Dave Schildkraut on alto sax, and backed by an all0star rhythm section comprised of Horace Silver on piano, Percy Heath on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums.

Tracks 2, 3 and 5 were recorded at the Beltone Studios in NYC on March 15, 1954. Miles is backed by Horace Silver on piano, Percy Heath on bass and Art Blakey on drums.

The remaining tracks were the first ones recorded on May 19, 1953 at the WOR Studios in NYC. Miles is backed by John Lewis on piano (except on track 4's Smooch when Charles Mingus sits in (Mingus was a virtuoso pianist as well as a bassist), with Percy Heath on bass and Max Roach on drums.

Give the sound samples a listen and decide for yourself. My copy is actually playing in the background while I write this review.
