Format: Audio CD
I am so glad that this album has been re-issued properly. It is clearly one of Miles' best concerts. Not only is it from one of the trumpeter's many peaks, but it also features arguably his greatest band, his Kind of Blue group. In this recording we hear Miles' band in it's transition from a steaming Bop group to the renowned modal phase which Miles is probably most well-known for. Right from the start, the drive is there, with Jimmy Cobb powering the band onwards through Charlie Parker's Ah-Leu-Cha. Miles is beautiful as usual, as is the young Bill Evans an unknown quantity in 1958, but the real interest lies in the contrast between Adderley and Coltrane. Adderley is superb in his Parker-derived approach and steams through the changes, but Coltrane takes the listener a step further. Listen to the sheets of sound that emanate from his tenor on this album and then listen to his playing pre-1958. This was an artist who evolved into someone else and had the sound of the future coming out of his horn, a true genius.
It took a long time coming, but now it's here count it as one of the big ones, up there with Miles' best

The Newport Jazz Festival 1958 produced a significant number of jazz albums and the classic film "Jazz On A Summer's Day" and here we hear a superb line up on the cusp of recording the best selling jazz album of all time, "Kind Of Blue". The six tracks here are all straight ahead standards of the genre:

Ah-Leu-Cha
Straight, No Chaser
Fran-Dance
Two Bass Hit
Bye Bye Blackbird
The Theme

This concert swings - but with a line up containing John Coltrane AND Cannonball Adderley it would be a very bad night indeed if it didn't. Just one word of caution - if you already own "Miles and Coltrane" then you have five of the six tracks here, despite what is claimed to be the adjacent date it's the same concert.

Paul Chambers fares well in this re-mastered classic. The group is loose but not to worry with this summit meeting of these great musical minds of Jazz!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cookin' Under the Summer Sun 15 Mar. 2009
By Best Of All - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The oftentimes hard to find double-album (Miles & Monk at Newport) Live at the Newport Jazz Festival is separated into the disc that delivered the incredible numbers from Miles Davis.

The tracks from the original dual release - Ah-Leu-Cha; Straight, No Chaser; Fran-Dance; Two Bass Hit; Bye, Bye Blackbird, The (Miles') Theme - are on the single CD. The band - Cannonball Adderley (alto sax), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Bill Evans (piano), Paul Chambers (bass), Jimmy Cobb (drums) - is in outstanding form for the July 3 gig.

This is one of the best live albums in the vast Miles discography, with the performance cooking in the hot summertime.

5.0 out of 5 stars great live outing of that great group that did Kind of Blue 27 Nov. 2013
By Jerbear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a big Miles fan and I love Bill Evans who only recorded Kind of Blue but there are a few live albums with Bill playing with Miles this is one of them. The inner play between these great players is wonderful what a super group Coltrane Cannonball Miles Bill with Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb. The song list comes from a number of great writers Monk Miles Parker this isn't mellow this set cooks. There are a few of my favorite songs here Straight No Chaser and Two Bas Hit. For me this is some good stuff great to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 'Kind Of Blue' sextet in fine fettle. Most of Miles' collections feature 'So What 21 May 2015
By Keith Bickerstaffe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The 'Kind Of Blue' sextet in fine fettle. Most of Miles' collections feature 'So What;' I like the track selection here omitting 'SW,' and concentrating on other staples of Miles' repertoire. Refreshing... clear sound and thrilling interpretations.
