'Round Midnight is a perfect song, from start to finish. Both Miles and Trane express what they want with gorgeous melodies and tone.
Ah-Leu-Cha is a great rendition of the classic Charlie Parker tune, especially with the intertwining melodies at the beginning.
All of You shows the depth of Miles' Harmon mute, and is the best take of this song I've heard (better than the Blackhawk recording or some of the Plugged Nickel stuff).
Bye Bye Blackbird contains what I think is Miles' best solo ever. His use of the Harmon mute is gorgeous and the entire song is unbelievable. Listen specifically to Philly Joe Jones brush strokes and Garland's comping skills on this one.
Tadd's Delight is a great bop-style tune with one of Coltrane's best solo's on the disc. Jones' drumming is also unbelievable on this track.
Dear Old Stockholm is the baddest jazz track ever. Period. That track is just bad as sh*t, from the first note to the end. And the highlight of this track is Paul's rare extended solo and Coltrane's solo. If there is a "best" song on this album, this is it. And Miles probably put it at the end purposely to make sure every listener knew that his band was the baddest there was and will ever be.
Although there are extras which are great, I'm not going to talk about them because they weren't in the original album (even though Budo is awesome).
If you should get anything out of this album, it should be this: this group was the tightest group there ever was and listening to this album proves it. Everyone is right in time and right on top of the music--no one one this record even though about doing a half-ass job when it came to producing some of the best music ever laid down on record. Enjoy
