This inventive post-bop treasure finds Miles totally reenergized by the young talent of his second quintet. The album is a brilliantly excecuted exercise in tension and release! Includes "Eighty-One," "Little One" "R.J." "Agitation" "Iris" "Mood," and the title track.

This was the first time Wayne Shorter recorded with Miles, and the band — in this configuration — had been together for less than a year. As you will hear, the connection between the musicians is uncanny, as if they had been playing together for decades. Especially notice Wayne Shorter’s brilliant interplay with Miles on the closing track “Mood,” the haunting ballad written by bassist Ron Carter.

Another stellar offering from Impex. I can hear the two artifacts mentioned in the disclaimer but they are subtle, unobtrusive, and in no way do they deter from the enjoyment of this listening experience. This LP is in heavy rotation in my listening room.

ESP done right

I played the original MONO everyday for an entire summer while reading from 1pm to 3pm during the summer of 1992 and know how the records should sound. I didn't have high expectations as I KNOW the original and how it sounded. However, the IMPEX is so close to the original MONO I was shocked! On side one, there is only two differences -- there is that 'Blue Note Van Gelder' hard stereo separation of instruments and on Mood, you can clearly hear someone snap their fingers which is a faint detail on the MONO original. However, it's what else that was inside that made me just fall back on this one:

Inside the album is a typed letter in which IMPEX APOLOGIZES FOR TWO NON-AUDIOPHILE ARTIFACTS ON THE VINYL! I have NEVER seen a reissue in which there is a letter of apology for artifacts. I need to come to the defense of IMPEX....THERE ARE NO ARTIFACTS!!

Buy with confidence that this is the way it should be!
