"Finally found the perfect Miles. For driving through NY on a slow, cold, rainy evening. Mellow indeed."

"One of many Miles cds dedicated to his ballad playing, this one is a nice example of Miles at his lyrical best. Highlights include "Circle," (from "Miles Smiles") "Old Folks," (from "Someday My Prince Will Come") and the sombre "Blue In Green." (from "Kind of Blue").A nice cross section of Miles at various points in his career and a good introduction to his lyrical mastery."
This is a classic

"This collection is exactly what it purports to be. Miles, Trane, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Cannonball Adderley & Bill Evans play Classic Ballads. The eight minute rendition of Bye Bye Blackbird is worth the price of the disc in itself but it is followed immediately by a superb rendering of Old Folks. This stuff is not altogether "cool". It sure ain't Bop and it precedes "fusion" but these musicians can do it all and two of Miles' own compositions, Circle & Blue in Green are included. Stella & Thought About You are Miles standards. What more do you want on one disc from one of the greatest jazz groups of all time. The copy I found doesn't even have liner notes but it does point out that there is forty-eight minutes of music enclosed. Buy this gem before it disappears."
