Ah the 'Miles Trilogy': Cookin',Steamin' and Relaxin'. They may not be a "must", but they are a definite "should have" for any Miles segment of a good listening collection. They are,after all,Miles and Trane. Take Steamin'(please). It opens with Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Surrey With The Fringe On Top",and everybody from the Seven Brothers (play) to Sonny Rollins (Newk's Time) plays it just like R&H wrote it...fast. Except Miles! Here,it's a muted,laid-back,low-swinging,very cool classic. Thanks,also,to Red Garland,Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. The opening and closing bars of Trane's solo have been stuck in my head since the 60's. The solo is quite sharp,too,as is Red's. Dizzy's "Salt Peanuts" is an old high-speed, birdland-style bebop classic jam, and Miles and Trane, introd(ed) by Philly Joe and Red, relay it as such. Watch for a long,mean drum solo from Philly Joe, which comes out of nowhere, and takes up most of the jam. Always the romantic, a muted Miles ballards to a low swing on "Something I Dreamed Last Night". Notice Paul's bass support here. Red, known for his harmonics,is 'swept along' by Philly Joe's brushwork, while soloing beautifully. "Diane" is similar to 'Surrey', in style. Red intros Miles (muted) and the theme. Miles swings a solo. Note Red's piano work behind Miles here. Trane enters with the theme, once, and is then off, blowing that old familiar "Tranesmoke". Red puts down a typically good solo. Miles closes. Miles'"Well You Needn't" is an excellent bop jam with very good solos from everyone. Notice a slightly different Red here, as well as a 'bowed' Paul. Miles "owns" "When I Fall In Love". Miles' romanticism is what makes Miles....well Miles! A romantic second to none. AND this is Miles Davis' "Steamin'", another in a long line of great Miles (and Trane) magic.
