Miles Davis Quintet, “The New” – Miles {Prestige}[DCC] “mono”


Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)

Although they had made a few slightly earlier cuts that would later be issued on Columbia, the first full-length album by the Miles Davis Quintet is quite intriguing in that it gives one a look at tenor saxophonist John Coltrane when he still had a hesitant style. This audiophile CD reissue has the same music that is currently available on an Original Jazz Classics set: five jazz standards plus “The Theme.” Unlike Coltrane, who would develop rapidly within the next year, Miles was already very much in his prime, sounding quite lyrical on “Just Squeeze Me” and “There Is No Greater Love,” and the classic rhythm section (pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones) was quickly starting to gel.

Tracks:
01 – Just Squeeze Me
02 – There is No Greater Love
03 – How am I to Know?
04 – S’posin
05 – The Theme
06 – Stablemates

Personnel:
Miles Davis – trumpet
John Coltrane – tenor sax
Red Garland – piano
Paul Chambers – bass
Philly Joe Jones – drums

Recorded in Hackensack, NJ on November 16, 1955.

Quality: eac, flac, cue, log, artwork
