Round About Midnight

CD (Item 493081) Columbia, 1956 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.60 5

Thelonious Monk wrote the title tune, but Miles Davis makes it almost his own here – blowing with a subtly moody magic that makes the album one of his true treasures from the early Columbia years! John Coltrane's along on tenor sax – helping Davis expand the sound the pair first forged on Prestige – and also present is the rhythm trio of Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – impeccably recorded here with a wonderful sense of space. Titles include Miles seminal take on "Round Midnight", plus "Tadd's Delight", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Bye Bye Blackbird", and "A Leu Cha". (Out of print. Columbia Jazz pressing with a purple border.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
