With new MD releases almost a monthly fixture these days I'm not surprised this one seems to have slipped under the radar somewhat. Which is more than a pity because putting my head confidently on the block, I'd suggest it merits near 'classic' status such is the quality of both performance and reproduction. The whole band is in relaxed and playful mood from the start; there's a subtlety here not as apparent on other recordings by this quintet featuring gentle giant George Coleman; an energy, a liveliness and humour as irrepressible as it is irresistible. It helps that the sound quality is top notch, and I mean TOP NOTCH - the clarity of Williams in particular is a revelation. An unconditional 5 star event....

There seem to be many non-Columbia live releases from soundboard and in particular radio broadcasts and some are of lesser fidelity which might put more casual buyers off. This one isn't one of those, it's a joy. Crisp sound and low price, it captures a performance on the evening of evSeptember 20th, 1963 featuring Miles and most of the second great quintet in the process of shaping, with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and an on fire Tony Williams all present. Sax duties are handled by George Coleman. Tracks are:

Autumn Leaves
So What
Stella By Starlight
Walkin'
The Theme

As with all Miles Davis live CD's don't let the familiar titles put you off as improvisation always takes the tracks somewhere else. Songs are stretched, taken off into new territory, with autumn Leaves in particular giving all the performers a chance to solo. So What is taken at breakneck pace, whilst Stella by Starlight rings the changes being paced slowly. Before the traditional concert closer of the theme there's one of my favourite Miles tracks Walkin' to enjoy too.

Wally Heider, who captured this and other concerts from a mobile truck and he captured everything beautifully. A lovely release well worth purchasing.

This superb but overlooked Miles Davis Quintet album was recorded live at Monterey on September 20, 1963 with a band who'd been together for just a few months.
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 "let a big fire under everyone in the group" according to Miles in his autobiography.
I'd like to thank 'Nomad'(see review) for alerting me to the existence of this marvellous album which makes an excellent companion to Miles' 'Live at Antibes 1963' recorded a couple of months earlier with the same band.
