Prestige, 2004, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Miles is legendary inside and outside of jazz circles. His signature is unique and cutting across a variety of styles. Even when he plays classics like “A Night In Tunisia” he is distinctly Miles, not Dizzy. This collection features highlights from 1953-1956 recordings on Prestige. It’s all pure miles bebop and he’s joined by a wealth of talent including Horace Silver (p), Red Garland (p), Paul Chambers (b), Philly Joe Jones (d) and especially John Coltrane (sax). These are ten classics.
