Overview

During the time period of 1953-1955, post-Birth of the Cool and pre-collaborations with John Coltrane, Miles Davis was the undisputed King of Hard Bop. These studio sessions, reissued from the Prestige Records vaults, capture a short span when Miles, it could be said, was truly in his prime. All of the 25 cuts on the two-CD set are solid examples of the trumpet sound Davis was brandishing and burnishing, with substantial help on select tracks from the likes of Sonny Rollins, John Lewis, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Milt Jackson, and J.J. Johnson. Each disc is filled to the brim with nearly 80 minutes of music, making this ample collection well worth your while at an affordable price.
