Undeniably one of the best small bands in the history of jazz, the Miles Davis quintet of the mid-1950s made history at the Cafe Bohemia on Manhattan's Barrow Street and in the New Jersey studio of Rudy Van Gelder for Prestige. This is the 3rd in a series of four LPs taped in two marathon studio sessions, done in the style of sets at the Bohemia, producing music of high energy and immediacy. This is a mix of standards and originals, up-tempos and ballads, and a trio number, "Ahmad's Blues." Miles is the sole survivor of this quintet but the music made in the mid-50's period will live forever. The excitement of the emerging John Coltrane; the informed, melodic swing of Red Garland; the tremendous snap and pop of the rhythm trio of Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, and Miles' poignancy and intense swing. Recording engineered by Rudy Van Gelder.

This blues set on Prestige sounds great on vinyl and is a great deal on the standard OJC pressing. Any OJC pressing is a great way to get into vinyl at a low cost. Get it while it is available.

Reviewer: Eddie Kelly
This is miles first and greatest quintet.They only lasted 3 years but their music output is timeless.Great individual players that were able to adapt to the music and their leader and yet make their own contributon to the music.Miles was a creative genius and exercise a powerful influence upon each member of his quintet making them play better as a group.Listen and marvel.This is Miles at it's best.
