Miles launch into stardom
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This version of Round Midnight is one of my favourite pieces of all time. Why..? Because its sharp, singin and continues to reach, up there. It cries and smiles at the same time, is dark yet light, because it carries so much feeling that would take many moons to explain. Enough said, the rest of the tracks are splendid too, and if you like Miles muted horn and Trane in his early stages, plus one of the most excellent rhythm sections ever in jazz, this is it. Listen carefully to the easy intro and you might notice the great potential which is about to unfold, but like always with Miles, each thing in its own little time."
Best after Kind of Blue

"Very Cool MilesThe Miles Davis I listen to most, after Kind of Blue. All time best recordings of Round Midnight and Blackbird. You feel like Miles is there in the room with you, Harmon mute and all. You feel his loneliness, melancholy and great joy. Communicates true emotion like no other Miles recording.Miles Davis first record with a major label.The SACD is even better.
I can't understand why this doesn't sell better?"

"This magnificent "cool" jazz record contains the first appearance of the "new" Coltrane. His playing on the previous Davis records had been promising but a little sloppy, Miles carried those records. Here he has clearly become Superhuman. Kicking junk might've had something to do with it according to Miles' autobio. The version of "Round Midnight" on this record, as great as it is, is arguably topped by the magnificently beautiful version on the LEGRAND JAZZ record. So click on over and pick that up if you think perfection can't be improved on."
