Especially beautiful is Coltrane's ballad feature, You're a Weaver of Dreams.
S. Greer
This 180g reissue by Jazz Wax Records is a DMM (direct metal master) pressing and the sound quality is very good.
Franklin
I had the original stereo recording of this, and I am glad it's rereleased on CD.

Format: Audio CD
This performance is a great union. The entire feel of the Miles Davis Sextet changes without Miles himself: how can a lone trumpet be so forceful? But I'm glad to report that this change is by no means bad. The playing of 'Canonball and Coltrane', to refer to the title of the original album (which had nicer cover art), is miraculous. They fill Miles's temporary void masterfully, churning out their passions and making the uttermost of sounds. I'm sad in saying it, but it's a relief to hear strong, straight-ahead music from these players that doesn't have Miles's searching lash always driving it to new ground. This is sit-back-and-burn music.

Quintet in Chicago begins with the classic cutting tune Limehouse Blues (to hear another good match on this riff, refer to the album Roy and Diz). If you love the saxophone and if you have half an ear, you will be frozen at attention by the time Cannonball breaks out of the melody and takes wing - and the altitude doesn't diminish; Coltrane pushes up and up: this song may leave you spent. But you can't stop now - Stars Fell on Alabama is next. This is the very model of the ballad, featuring Cannonball and rhythm. This is my favorite track on this album, and one of my favorite on any. Each note cannonball sings here is a gift, and the whole is easy and wailing; and it is a sweet spell in the ears. But I urge you not to listen to this more than thirteen times in a row right now - you have the rest of the album to hear. WIth a wish to keep this review brief, I will say only that the rest of the album is fully energetic and satisfying. Especially beautiful is Coltrane's ballad feature, You're a Weaver of Dreams.

Please go out and buy, or click and buy, this CD right now if you haven't heard it, especially if you play saxophone. You will keep it near for a long time.

I had the original stereo recording of this, and I am glad it's rereleased on CD. I thoroughly enjoy every cut on this recording. Cannonball does a lovely reading of "Stars", and the interaction between him and Coltrane is great, you can tell the mutual admiration each of them had for each other. Highly recommended listening!!

I will not review the music, as everybody knows this is a classic, and nothing I can add. The sound quality of this pressing is excellent and the quality of the heavy vinyl is superb.

This is a review for the vinyl option for this title. This cover is the original picture from the '59 release on Mercury called The Cannonball Adderly Quintet in Chicago. It was reissued in '64 on Limelight with a different cover. The back cover here also has the original liner notes.
This 180g reissue by Jazz Wax Records is a DMM (direct metal master) pressing and the sound quality is very good. There is a bit of crackly noise in the silence between the first two cuts, that disappears when the music starts. It's been my experience that this sort of noise is common on modern pressings, and most of it goes away with subsequent plays. I think it has something to do with de-burring, or lack of, but I'm not sure with DMM pressings. My copy of the record is reasonably flat, although not perfect. Overall, I'd have to say I'm glad I have this on vinyl which I prefer.

Although this looks like the cover of a live recording, it was done in a studio in Chicago. The LP contains a bonus cut "Serenata" which was recorded in NYC without Coltrane. The rest of this record is the Miles Davis band at the time, without Miles. That time was pretty close to the recording of Kind of Blue. At first his presence is missed, but this is good in its own right. Neither sax player reaches the heights attained in their solos on KOB, but the playing and interplay is great, just a different kind of record.

The past couple of years I've read Miles bashing on some forums. I must say, thank God for Miles. He not only changed music forever, he changed the sound of the trumpet. It would be unfair to compare this to KOB, but it is the same band, only without him.
This will never be the greatest selling jazz record of all time, but it's still an excellent record and I recommend it even though the driving force of Miles Davis is absent.

Anyone who likes jazz will love this album. Coltrane is complex but melodic and Cannonball is his usual upbeat, witty self. In my opinion, it is one of the very best jazz albums from the late '50's/early '60's.

This is one of those playlists that points out graphically why we were so unfortunate to have lost this master of the alto sax at such an early age. His work with Coltrane and the members of his quintet is special in his Chicago album

Miles Davis' Quintette w/o Miles but including Cannonball and Coltrane. Every fan of jazz in the the bebop era should own this album.
