Miles Davis: The New Miles Davis Quintet 12"

Prestige Records


This is the first LP to be issued featuring the Miles Davis Quintet, a group that would go on to become one of the most influential small bands of the '50s. It also marked the introduction of John Coltrane to the jazz world. Davis's singular mastery with a mute, exemplified on The Musings of Miles (OJCCD-004-2), is further emphasized here, as is Red Garland's penchant for picking "new" old standards for Miles.
