Miles Davis' 'Round About Midnight on numbered limited edition 180-gram vinyl

Mastered from the original master tapes

Miles Davis' first album for Columbia, ‘Round About Midnight, represents both the beginning of a three-plus-decade relationship with the famed label as well as the start of an extended collaboration with then-unknown saxophonist John Coltrane. As one of the era's only complete start-to-finish full-length LPs, the 1957 set stands as a hard-bop benchmark — a summation of the styles that came before its creation, an immersion into the period's cutting-edge strains, and a hint of the rivoluse modalism that would follow.

Historically, few jazz records claim the significance boasted by ‘Round About Midnight. The album's creation — and the assembly of Davis' quintet, which also includes Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones — stems from the headliner's rousing rendition of the title-inspired track, "'Round Midnight," a Thelonious Monk standard, at the 1955 Newport Jazz Festival. Stunning the audience with an interpretation that witnessed him personalize the composition with a brooding tone made possible via employment of his soon-to-be-trademark Harmon mute, Davis redefined perspective and possibility, taking ownership of the ballad as his own, and further improving upon its reach in the studio.

Pretty good pressing

I liked this pressing. Thought the detail was good. I have an original 6 eye mon and sure sounds better than that. I may have to pick up the Speaker's Corner version to compare.

Speakers Corner is better

I have to agree with the previous reviewer. I listened to the MoFi and the Speakers Corner head-to-head and the Speakers Corner won. More detailed and more natural-sounding. The detail is not the result of a treble boost; it just sounds like a better transfer to me.

Reviewer: Ian
Although the pressing and packaging are top notch, I am disappointed with the mastering. Miles' trumpet is small, rolled off/ dull sounding.

I have copies of this album on almost every format and all of them sound better in my opinion. My goto is the Speakers Corner LP.
