Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Miles Davis's long relationship with Columbia began with the 1955-56 recordings heard here, as the trumpeter's suddenly rising career curve was consolidated after the move from the independent Prestige label. The band on this CD is the first of Davis's classic quintets, the extraordinary group with John Coltrane, pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones that still stands as the definitive ensemble in modern mainstream jazz. The music ranges from the smoldering emotions of Davis's distinctively muted ballad performances to the searching quality already apparent in Coltrane's keening horn, while the band's unique chemistry is apparent on "Dear Old Stockholm" and the novel counterpoint of Charlie Parker's "Ah-Leu-Cha."

The Legacy Edition contains four bonus tracks from the original sessions, plus a second disc of live material - one track from the Newport Jazz Fest 1955 (with Thelonious Monk), and eight previously unreleased tracks from the 1956 Pasadena concert. --Stuart Broomer

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it Again, Anyway. It's way, way too good. June 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
No one should need to have the importance of this disc explained to them and from a sonic standpoint, the quality here is from the same remastered and restored tapes that produced the Miles/Trane box. What takes this elsewhere are the extra tracks from the recording sessions, and they are each terrific, and the second bonus disc with a live date of Miles with Monk delivering an absolutely mystical "Round Midnight," plus a concert from Pasadena California with the Trane quintet.

Regarding the Monk selection, the way that each man inspired the other is perhaps nowhere near so claerly evident as on this track. By itself, it would justify the price. Following with the never before released concert from Pasadena makes the second disc worth releasing on its own merits. The goof-ball MC sounds like such a cornball in his intro to Davis and his band, that you will find yourself squirming in humour. Imagine Jack Benny introducing P Diddy. Actually......

well, anyway, the band kicks in and there is an undeniable energy that they bring to the audience. Hopefully, as is the case with Hendrix, there are lodas of concert tapes from this quintet as well asmany of the other formations Miles put together. Miles was a live player. The studio records were phenomenal, but he knew the dialectics of live performance better than any jazz artist before or after him.

replace your other copies of this essential document. What you are familiar with will delight you, and the new stuff will astound you.

5.0 out of 5 stars What have I been missing? June 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Firstly, I am not a jazz fan. This is perhaps because I have heard too many cool people running on at the mouth about the subject (especially about their cult of improvisation), and haven't taken the time to just sit down and have a listen. Well, shame on me! I checked the old rev. of this CD from the library on a whim (there he was, in that devilish red and black light), and wow. I did not hear the novelty of improvisation. I did not hear someone trying to sound different than everybody else. No, I heard sublime interpretations of traditional themes, rather than the chaotic pomposity that my prejudices had warned me against. I had to go buy this marvellous, and quite listenable production, because I didn't want to have to wait to get this breath of fresh air from the library. Buy this for your medicine cabinet; I'm sure the doctor will approve.

This set contains Davis' first album for Columbia after wrapping up his obligations to Prestige, plus some amazing live performance tracks. Before I bore you with history and any weak analysis I may write, take a few moments to listen to the sound samples. Those really should be all you need to decide if this album is right for you.

The first six tracks are what comprised the original album that was recorded in three sessions for Columbia in NY (October 26, 1955 and June 5 and September 10, 1956.) This album was released by Columbia as CL 949 on March 18, 1957.

All of the remaining tracks on disc 1 are all from the October 5, 1955 session except for Sweet Sue, Just You, which was recorded during the September 10, 1956 session. All of these tracks were performed by Davis on trumpet, John Coltrane on tenor sax, and a rhythm section comprised of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums.

On disc 2 the first track is from the Newport Jazz festival on July 17, 1955. It is one of the seminal renditions of Monk's 'Round Midnight and featured Davis backed by Monk himself on piano, Zoot Sims on tenor sax, Gerry Mulligan on baritone sax, and the remaining rhythm section of Percy Heath on bass and Connie Kay on drums (both of whom were Modern Jazz Quartet alumni.) The remaining tracks are From the Pacific Jazz Festival in 1956 featuring Davis on trumpet, John Coltrane on tenor sax, and a rhythm section comprised of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums.

Since my favorite era for Miles encompasses the Prestige and early Columbia years this - to me - is a treasure. Frankly the single track on disc 2 from Newport putting Miles on the same stage as Monk is what makes this of such value to me. Again, let the sound samples guide you - your ears will not let you down.

Classic early Davis. You have to love this album, and Coltrane was yet to peak on it too, leaving room for anticipation.
