If you are reading this review and are interested in the Plugged Nickel recordings, then you are probably a Miles Davis fan and own at least some of his earlier recordings. In late December of 1965, Miles and his second great quintet, assembled around 1960 and consisting of Wayne Shorter on tenor sax, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and the amazing and young Tony Williams on the drum kit, played two nights at Chicago's Plugged Nickel club. The set list was a bit surprising in that it conisisted of tunes that Miles had recorded with his previous quintets from the 50's at the heart of the bebop movement, typically with John Coltrane on tenor sax, Red Garland or Horace Silver on piano, and a core rhythm section of Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones or Jimmy Cobb on drums. Miles played with LOTS of different sidemen during the 50's but the latter lineup were his more consistent sidemen from that time, especially with these tunes.

At their core, the Plugged Nickel recordings represent Miles and his then-current band revisiting and more to the point - REINTERPRETING - a handful of great bebop tunes over two late December nights in Chicago: "Milestones (one of two versions)," "Yesterdays (only version)," "So What (only version)," "Stella By Starlight (one of three versions)" "Walkin' (one of two versions)" and "Round Midnight (only version)." The "Complete" box set of 8 discs adds another 13 cuts (some in multiple versions) to the material and in the interest of brevity I would recommend you visit the wiki to learn more about the complete set list.

This needs to be heard on a nice system at a smidge louder than your usual listening level. The recording and remastering are a dream. I find the lack of conventional structure refreshing, the tone and mood take center stage and that takes this music on a whirlwind journey. Tony Williams ride cymbol knows the way. This recording breathes real excitement into these chestnuts.

Curiously, this is the second review I've done for the Plugged Nickel sets, the other being under the Complete sets. I hadn't planned on reviewing this one as well, but then realized there were two good reasons to do so: for one, this is currently the only Plugged Nickel set available, so people will almost certainly want to start with this one. For another, it works as an album of its own, though fans of the Complete will have plenty to argue with in terms of what's here and what's not (no "Agitation", especially the one where Wayne breaks down into full on free jazz before pulling miraculously back? Not one of the versions of "I Fall in Love Too Easily?"). Still, this is what most will get, and it's very good.

What Columbia have done is to attempt to make "one concert" out of the seven sets: all save one of the songs (the lovely, closing "Round Midnight") are from Saturday, where Miles sounded better and more songs (like "So What") were performed.This strategy helped pick versions, since most of these songs were only played once on Saturday. They also picked some obvious winners, and that's where fans will get a fabulous live album, even if it lacks the depth of the Complete. The lauded version of "Yesterdays" here, placed second in the running order instead of near last on the last set, really showcases just how amazing this song is, with an inventive Hancock section worth the price of this disc alone. Those not familiar with live Miles will be dazzled at how fast "So What" runs after this, but part of the joy of this disc is the easy movement between ballads and breakneck paced "hits" like "Walkin" and the amazing opener, "Milestones".

Miles Davis' second classic quartet got its start playing older Davis songs and standards live. There are different albums out there with the lineup transitioning into the Shorter-Hancock-Carter-Williams group, then there's the Plugged Nickel which brings everyone together. The Highlights are six songs lasting 73 minutes total. It's pretty good, as you'd expect this group to be. Miles Davis fans should pick it up. My biggest reservation is that the studio CDs starting with "Miles Smiles" are more interesting and better. I recommend getting those first, then picking this up later to fill the picture in.
