This is a wonderful compilation, full of gems like "'Round Midnight," "Blue in Green," "How Deep Is the Ocean," "Bye Bye Blackbird," and many others recorded with a virtual litany of jazz greats, including John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver, Hank Jones, Cannonball Adderley, Charles Mingus, Art Blakey, Max Roach, and so many more, containing over two and a half hours of mid-period Miles Davis doing what he did best -- finding the heart of a ballad and making it sound like his Harmon-muted trumpet was crying the blues for all the lost and lonely souls in the world.
