i've long adored this cd on the Italian Giants of Jazz label. the single cd version of this Stockholm 1960 concert (there is a rather more expensive 4 cd versions also featuring sax player Sonny Stitt in extra live perfomances).

back in '89 - as a newcomer to jazz and Coltrane in particular, just to hear Miles + Coltrane stretching out live as here was a revelation. if your a fan of both great artists studio recordings such as kind of blue, giant steps, a love supreme etc - this cd is invaluable in showing Miles's group (Wynton Kelly on piano in delightful form also) but main soloist - Coltrane most of all, in unbelievably passionate exploratory form - his solo on the 15 minutes All Blues gets me every time - send shivers down the spine! the roar of approval from a clearly overwhelmed concert fan says it all also.

SO - Coltrane fans should definitely buy this cd as remarkable recording of 'Trane stretching out live just at a pivotal time in his career. sound quality is a little forward but still very good indeed. majestic live versions of classic music at a pivotal moment in jazz.

This little-known concert by the Miles Davis Quintet was recorded at the Konserthuset, Stockholm on March 22, 1960 and features some wonderful playing from the group. John Coltrane was said to have been reluctant to go on the 1960 tour with Miles and was straining at the leash to start his own group. Nevertheless, Trane is in stunning, exploratory form throughout and inspires some of Miles' best playing on So What, Fran-Dance, All Blues, On Green Dolphin Street & Walkin'. The exemplary rhythm section is Wynton Kelly(piano), Paul Chambers(bass) & Jimmy Cobb(drums).
Currently hard to find, this electrifying concert recording is definitely worth searching for.

Featuring five of the seven musicians who made us Kind of Blue in 1958, this 1960 offering has extended versions of two tunes from that album (So What and All Blues) as well as three more from the same epoch (Fran-dance, On Green Dolphin Street, and Walkin'). Miles and Coltrane exchange extended solos in a way that reminds you of how great, and also how different, they were. It's not perfect - sometimes they seem to take a while to work out where they want to go, or hang onto a phrase longer than necessary - but you can sense two great musicians in tune with each other, yet each yearning to explore new and different avenues, captured together in an all-too-rare moment of balance and harmony. The rhythm section is rock-solid, driving things forwards in a way that only seems to happen on live recordings, and Wynton Kelly produces some interesting solos of his own. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Think you know the best jazz record of all time? 5 Nov 2002
By Michael J. Edelman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Not long ago I was talking jazz with a friend, and I said something like "and we all know that 'Kind of Blue' is the best jazz album ever recorded, right?" My friend responded with "Second best. Have you ever heard the the Miles Stockholm concert?"
I hadn't, but I decided to track it down. And it was well worth it.
This album covers some of the same ground as "Kind of Blue" ("So What" and "All Blues") but with a slightly different combo and in a live setting. The absence of Bill Evans does change the sound of the combo, but the difference in Coltrane's playing in the live setting makes this album an absolute must-have for any fan of Miles' music. It's not a substitute for "Kind of Blue" as much as it is a compliment. Coltrane's playing here is much freer, and more firey; it's sort of a preview oif the playing he was about to embark upon in his solo albums that followed. Think of it as the album that ties together "Kind of Blue" and "A Love Supreme".

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime 20 Nov 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My first experience of the delights of Miles and 'Trane was purchasing this CD over a decade ago. Since then I've collected classics such as "Kind of Blue", "Milestones", and "'58 Sessions", but this live recording from the legendary 1960 Stockholm concerts is hard to beat. It's virtually all I've played in my car for the past 18 months, last week prompting a little voice to squeak from the back seat "Daddy, don't you like any other music?" Which is just the point. I love heaps of music, but this offering from one of the great bands of all time is as cool and brilliant, without being pompous or inaccessable, as you're ever going to hear. It's out of print, so beg or borrow, but don't steal. My only copy was stolen in a burglary, so when you find this CD get two copies

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Album, More Davis Than Trane 9 Aug 2003
By J H Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I liked this album - found it on the Giants Of Jazz label, CD 53014, on the remainder pile at a local store[]! Even at full price it's good. The one disappointment I found was that the playing time seemed to favor Miles Davis over John Coltrane. The supporting players are great, Winton Kelly on piano is perfect introducing the title soloists and playing counterpoint, and Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb lay down a good foundation. (I'm listening to the On Green Dolphin Street track as I write this.) I don't think I'd say this was the greatest jazz album of all time, but it's definitely a good addition to the collection.
