The highlights here were to be revisited ("Dear Old Stockholm" a few years later on Miles' Columbia debut, and "Weirdo" here becomes "Sid's Ahead" a few years later) but there is still some nice jazz here and very nice ambience to the sessions. Horace Silver's piano on the latter session sparkles.
This is a solid 4 star release when compared to Miles' later work. This release is made up of two sessions, one from 1952 and one from early 1954. Contrary to what you may have heard or assumed, this is not bad music. It isn't exactly forward-looking and Miles isn't playing up to his ability but his playing is still good, as are the other musicians who participated in these sessions.
It's very interesting to hear the incredible difference between the two sessions, in 1952, Miles was a heroin addict and by the second session, he'd kicked the habit. The 1954 session is far more lively.
If you are interested in Miles' music and tracking his career and development then this release is highly recommended, otherwise, skip it and start at Bags' Groove (recorded at the end of 1954).
