round about midnight [original recording remastered]miles davis | format: audio cd product details * audio cd (april 17, 2001) * original release date: 1955 * number of discs: 1 * format: original recording remastered * label: sony

Amazon.co.uk

Where the original 1957 'Round About Midnight had six tracks, this remastered edition is bolstered by a further four pieces, recorded during the same mid-1950s sessions. The new edition still begins with the title track and it's an inspirational version, prompted by the trumpeter's return to public form with the very same number at the 1955 Newport Jazz Festival. It's like the microphone's seated right up inside the muted bell, picking up every metallic fracture and putter, his spine-tingling solo centrally placed, band cohorts restrained with delicate brushes, ivory dapples and faintly stroked strings. The album marked Miles's Columbia debut, supported by the legendary line-up of John Coltrane (tenor saxophone), Red Garland (piano), Paul Chambers (bass) and Philly Joe Jones (drums). Coltrane always made a striking stylistic contrast with Miles, once again best illustrated by the title cut, when his solo entrance immediately prompts a kind of relief, upping the action into a mini-big band swing feel. --Martin Longley

Format: Audio CD
When critics cite Miles' best records, this rarely gets a mention; but to me, Round About Midnight is one of the definitive Miles albums.it features his first great quintet at the height of their powers, and the sheer effortless professionalism of these recordings is amazing. The title track is one of Miles' great ballad performances, stark, moody and walking a fine line between soothing and haunting.Coltrane is the perfect foil, at this stage not the finished product as a performer in his own right but a brilliant sideman. The rest of the album is laid back but full of vibrant energy and All of You in particular swings irresistably. This may not be Miles' most innovative work, but it is unquestionably among his most polished and enjoyable, and the sound on the recent cd re-issue is superb for a 1956 recording. It is a must for Miles fans, and deserves a higher prfile.

A very cool album by the sublime Miles Davis Quintet of the 50's. The individual strengths of each player that made this group so good are showcased on this recording; The beautiful tone of Miles's trumpet being played through a harmon mute directly into the microphone, inventive solos from Coltrane, steady drumming from Philly Joe and laid back playing from Red Garland on piano.
An extremely cool, laid-back album from the quintet, one of my favourite Davis albums, well worth buying.

As someone only recently introduced to Miles Davis via Kind Of Blue I thought I'd research a few albums via YouTube first before putting my hand in my pocket - and as soon as I heard this it didn't take long to buy. This is a classic mid 50's sound, his first for Columbia, with Davis on superb form surrounded by a tight ensemble that brings out the very best in the music. The recording is crystal clear and the additional sleeve note authoritative. All in all a great package for relaxing to.

I really enjoy "Round About Midnight" as I do with all Miles work but I will say that there is better stuff out there. There is just a little something missing which I just can't put my finger on. Still a very good album.

Not his best, but good enough with a splendid asemble, Chambers on bass Coltrane on sax is a treat.
Miles did nearly 10 really really good albums, this is one of those -
