EDITORS’ NOTES

Three-fifths of Miles Davis' Second Great Quintet—pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams, augmented here by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and tenor saxophonist George Coleman—continue their experiments in telepathic mind meld on this oceanic gem from 1966. The sailing is smooth, with one memorable solo after another flowing seamlessly into superb future standards, like Hancock's title track and "Dolphin Dance." Cool spaciousness prevails, at least until the shipwreck resulting in "Survival of the Fittest."
