At times perhaps more lighthearted than such records as Kind of Blue, Someday My Prince Will Come is an early sextet album, featuring great performances from pianist Wynton Kelly, and the tenor saxophones of John Coltrane and Hank Mobley (the album was recorded in 3 separate sessions - Coltrane not featuring on Old Folks and Drad Dog, the 3rd and 4th tracks). The choice tracks really are Someday my Prince will Come, Pfrancing, and Teo, all unique, and fantastically cool. The title track (a ballad from the Disney film "Snow White") is a gentle, but entertaining opening to the album, and we are introduced to the talents of the whole sextet, especially Kelly, who produces a great solo. The rhythm section, made up of Paul Chambers (Bass) and Jimmy Cobb (Drums) ignite the rendition of Teo (dedicated to album producer Teo Macero), featuring a fiery solo by Coltrane, balanced superbly by the beautiful trumpet of Miles.
This is definitely a must-buy for all fans of this great musical giant. A superb record.
Released originally in 1961 'Someday..' sounds as fresh, exciting and involving now as it did all those years ago.It will give you hours of listening pleasure. Simple as that! I must also mention the great re-mastering job,great sleevenotes and photos.Recommended.
The album was recorded over three afternoons in March 1961, the personnel varying on the eight tracks released on this CD, although the original LP release had just six tunes.
Overall the tone of the album is one of "fruitful mellowness", all tunes being taken at a slow, contemplative pace, even the tune "Blues No2" which is the fastest on the album.
On the CD Coltrane features on the title track and "Teo", otherwise Hank Mobley takes the tenor role. Phiily Joe plays on just one track: "Blues No 2"
Personnel on each track matters only to the aficionados. For the rest of us it is the music. Every track is a pearl, ranging in time from 5 - 10 min. Every musician is a star turn. This really is a gem of an album.
Next up "Old Folks" features some plaintive trumpeting from Miles. a simply beautiful tune taken at slow pace that sounds very romantic.
"PFrancing" continues the romantic theme and is dedicated to then girlfriend Francis, featured on the cover and is alternatively known as "No Blues". The theme was widely used to signal the close of a concert for many years and will be familiar to anyone who has heard Miles' live recordings throughout the 1960's, and features great piano work from Wynton Kelly.
"Drad Dog" sees a return to a slower pace, almost laconic and demonstrates the variety on this album well.
"Teo" is Miles' salute to producer Teo Macero, with saxophone prominent this is taken at a lick.
"I Thought About You" returns to the slow pace with lovely interplay between Miles' trumpet and Wynton's piano before Jimmy Cobb, one of two drummers on this album kicks in.
"Blues No.2" is one of two bonus additions to the original album with the departing drummer Philly Joe Jones present. An upbeat track
It isn't only drums which demonstrate the flux of the band, here John Coltrane features on just the title track and "Teo", with the balance covered by Hank Mobley. This was the last time Coltrane and Davis worked together and is thus important on that basis alone.
This is a lovely, relaxing album, perhaps not quite up there with Miles' very best but very worthy of investigation.Read more ›

Remastered early Miles Davis - still the best. Amazing price too.
Wish the case had been shrink wrapped - the stick-on label left a real mess.
