This record is Miles at his best, once again proving his unrivalled abilities both as a player of beautiful ballads and as an innovative performer.
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.

After 'Kind of Blue' this is one Miles album everyone should own. If you like 'KofB','Someday' is sure to appeal.For me, this set is a masterpiece,but for some reason not as well known or appreciated as perhaps it should be. From swing to melancholia, and blues,popular song and flamenco this platter is a complete and satisfying listening experience as any jazz album has a right to be. Small wonder given the line up- John Coltrane,Hank Mobley ,Jimmy Cobb et al provide suitably subtle support to Miles's haunting trumpet tone.Listen out particularly for pianist Wynton Kelly with his fabulous contributions throughout and of course Coltranes's work on 'Teo',which is a thing of beauty and power all by itself.No review would be appropriate without mentioning that Miles is at the top of his game here.His playing on the ballad,'I Thought About You' is superlative:emotional with just the right amount of manly vigour that avoids sending the track into the sentimental syrup zone.

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.

This album dates from 1961 and possibly the last Davis album to feature John Coltrane, albeit just on a couple of tracks. Coltrane is in the process of establishing his own quartet and his career as a leader. Philly Joe Jones and Paul Chambers from the pre-1959 group are here too. Otherwise we have Wynton Kelly, Jimmy Cobb and Hank Mobley.

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.

One of my favourite Miles Davis sessions, "Someday" tends to be underrated by those who feel the great trumpeter's band suffered from a period of flux at the time. While Davis was certainly making changes in this period, as a pure listening experience "Someday" is hard to fault, featuring a stellar lineup of musicians and some fine tunes. The ballad performances on "Old Folks", "I Thought About You" and the title track are really beautiful, and the originals are also delightful. Davis' muted trumpet sounds as elegant and sexy as ever, and Wynton Kelly is in fine form on piano. This album may not be as iconic as "Kind of Blue" or "Porgy and Bess" but it is a choice listen nonetheless.

A fine, if forgotten transitional album for Miles Davis at a point when his band was in flux. The title track, featured here in two versions with a bonus alternative take included, is a bouncy, upbeat take on the Disney classic - perhaps a surprising choice but one that works.

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.
