A limited-supply CD import from Japan in a high-quality paper sleeve; the perfect collector’s item.
This is the first LP to be issued featuring the Miles Davis Quintet–a group that was to become one of the most influential small bands of the Fifties. It also introduced John Coltrane to the jazz public, launching him on his significant career. Davis's singular mastery with a mute, exemplified on The Musings of Miles (OJCCD-004-2), is further emphasized, as is Red Garland's penchant for picking "new" old standards for Miles.
with John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones
