Miles: The New Miles Davis Quintet: Vinyl LP1811061
Label: Craft Recordings
Release Date: 24th November
The debut from The Quintet, the beginning of one of Miles most rich periods. As you'd expect it's a versatile record with a band playing like a Swiss watch, hoping between bops and swings and sweet slow lyrical ballads. Decent trumpeter, weren't he?
The album is the debut record by the Miles Davis Quintet, and generally known by the original title Miles as indicated on the cover. It features the same personnel that played on the classic 1956 sessions, consisting of Davis, John Coltrane, Red Garland and Philly Joe Jones. Reissued on vinyl by Craft Recordings, released as part of the Craft Jazz Essentials series.
