A neglected modern jazz classic.,
This review is from: Miles In Europe (Audio CD)
This album recorded at the 1963 Antibes Jazz Festival with a band who'd been together for just a few weeks is a neglected classic. There is electrifying playing from the whole quintet which includes the vastly underrated tenorist George Coleman, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter and the brilliant 17 year-old drummer Tony Williams who "lit a big fire under everyone in the group" according to Miles in his autobiography. Ralph J.Gleason has written that Miles was so delighted when he first heard this recording that he almost wore out the test pressings!
This marvellous CD which includes a bonus track and has a remarkable playing time of over 80 minutes is an essential part of any Miles Davis collection.

You might want to treat yourself to 'MDQ - Live at the 1963 Monterey Jazz Festival': it features the same line-up and is EVEN better! All the best, N
