'Round About Midnight
(Columbia / Legacy)

MILES DAVIS: 'Round About Midnight (Columbia / Legacy)'Round About Midnight was Miles' first full-length release for Columbia, and one of the most beautiful of his career. Widely considered to be among the best groups in the history of jazz, the legendary quintet (which changed slightly over time) included John Coltrane on tenor saxophone, Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on the drums. In addition to the six tracks that were on the original release, the newly remastered version includes four bonus tracks--Jackie McLean's exploratory "Little Melonae," an updated version of "Budo" (both from the deleted album, Miles and Coltrane), an alternate version of "Two Bass Hit," and the rarity, "Sweet Sue, Just You." This album is an essential part of any Miles collection.
