Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound from the original analog master tapes to vinyl and PCM. The DSD was sourced from the PCM. George listened to all of the different A/D converters he had before he chose which to use, and he felt the George Massenburg GML 20 bit A/D produced the best and most synergistic sound for the project.
"...The Columbia/Legacy reissue of the original session of 1992 remastered the original tapes and is quite good, but an A/B comparison with the three-channel SACD from Analogue Productions shows a much more realistic and musical-sounding piano. When Miles comes in on center, his trumpet is more colorful, detailed and rich-sounding than on the standard CD. The drums also possess a more varied and detailed presence in the mix." - John Henry, Audiophile Audition, September 2010
In 1963, Miles Davis was at a transitional point in his career, without a regular group and wondering what his future musical direction would be. At the time he recorded the music heard on this disc, he was in the process of forming a new band, as can be seen from the personnel: tenor saxophonist George Coleman, Victor Feldman (who turned down the job) and Herbie Hancock on pianos, bassist Ron Carter, and Frank Butler and Tony Williams on drums. Recorded at two separate sessions, this set is highlighted by the classic "Seven Steps To Heaven," "Joshua" and slow passionate versions of "Basin Street Blues" and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home."
