'Round About Midnight
from Sony

'Round About Midnight

In 1955, Miles Davis signed on with jazz powerhouse Columbia Records. With alto and tenor saxophonists Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane, drummer Philly Joe Jones, bassist Paul Chambers, and pianist Red Garland, Davis released 'Round About Midnight, which evinces even more clearly what a phenomenal unit Davis was nurturing. Stylistically, Midnight encompasses standards (or soon-to-be standards) such as “Dear Old Stockholm,“ “Bye-Bye Blackbird,“ Tadd Dameron's “Tadd's Delight,“ and Jackie McLean's forward-thinking composition “Little Melonae.“ Miles and company reprise “Budo“ from the historic Birth of the Cool sessions. The standout track is Davis's Harmon-muted reading of Thelonious Monk's ballad, “'Round Midnight, which is still a Miles standard bearer. Three alternate takes round out the session: “Two Bass Hit“ and “Sweet Sue“ feature adventuresome solos by Coltrane that preview his masterpiece “Giant Steps.“ And Garland moves away from his Ahmad Jamal pianisms with his introspective ivory ticklings. If you want to hear the origins of post-bop modern jazz, this is it. --Eugene Holley Jr.
