"This is the radio broadcast of the last appearance of John Coltrane with the Miles Davis Quintet, in Holland on April 9, 1960. (Sean - otherwise very astute - has confused this with another CD from Stockholm, as he acknowledges.)The performances are excellent - all five band members are in top form. Even though it is only a few months after Kind of Blue, it is more in the hot, 'blowing' style, rather than the cool modal jazz of that studio album.Very worthwhile for the budget price, even though it is only as long (45 minutes) as the original LP."
Good, but available elsewhere

"This cd is an outtake from a Miles show with Coltrane, Wynton Kelly, Jimmy Cobb, and Paul Chambers, from Stockholm in 1960. The complete Stockholm concert that has these tracks is still in print and therefore should be sought out."
