This is not to imply that the world of 1956 was in any way a world of stifling conformity. This was the age of hard bop, a mode of playing that remains notable for the accomplished intensity it demanded. Miles wasn’t a rock & roller, not yet, at least, but there’s still something uncompromising in his pose on these records. Bop required fierce attention to detail and prided itself on technical virtuosity. […]

All About Jazz
There is no highlight on this recording or the other four recordings that resulted from these two sessions. They are collectively the highlight of the first phase of the first great Miles Davis Quintet, captured here more crisply and accurately than on any previous release of this music. […]

Enjoy the®
My only beef is that there are only six cuts. If you any interest whatsoever in jazz, I recommend that you buy this recording. It may spark a much more serious interest in jazz. If you have an abiding interest in jazz, you’ll want to listen to this MoFi release as soon as you can. […]
