5.0 out of 5 stars Great killer Miles, September 14, 1999
By 
Sparky P. "jsparkyp" (composer, all around nice guy, yada yada yada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Miles Davis: Volume 2 (Audio CD)
Although the number of selections are quite small (six different tunes, five of which have its alternate take), the quality of playing is strong in every way. Miles and the boys play through those tricky triplets in "Ray's Idea" very cleanly. The two ballads, "Enigma" and "I Waited for You," again show Miles' marvelous tender side. "Kelo" and "CTA" are two great boppin' ensemble pieces, with great solos all around. The real capper of this set is Bud Powell's "Tempus Fugit," with again more great solos from Miles, saxist Horace Silver and t'bonist Jay Jay Johnson. The real kicker of this piece however is Art Blakey's infectious backbeat. Probably my most favorite piece of jazz drumwork. My feet in fact can never stay still through this track. (Another great track with Art Blakey? How about Thelonious Monk's "Epistrophy" from the Monk/Coltrane. But add your own other favorites as well.)
