iTunes Editors’ Notes

Miles Davis had recently recorded the all-time classics Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain, but this album, released at the end of 1961, marked a time of change. His rhythm section is still onboard, but the departures of John Coltrane (who guests on two tracks here) and Cannonball Adderley left a hole that softer-toned tenor man Hank Mobley could only partially fill. Even so, this album is very, very good, with the quintet working in the same mode as on Davis’ mid-‘50s Prestige releases that leaned more on standards and conventional arrangements. Regardless of who wrote it or recorded it, any ballad that Miles Davis played in this era sets a new standard: “Someday My Prince Will Come” (with Coltrane) is a stone-cold classic, and “I Thought About You” isn’t far behind. Of the three originals, the waltzing “Teo” features the trumpeter giving a textbook lesson on his less-is-more aesthetic, and Coltrane pours soulful passion into his solo. Also included in this reissue are previously unreleased versions of the title cut and “Blues No. 2.”

Customer Reviews

A Miles Classic!

This album (to me) never got the credit it deserved. If you like Kind of Blue, this is in the same vein. I actually prefer this album. "Teo" is definitely the masterpiece, Miles delivers and Coltrane's solo is out of this world. My second favorite is "Drad Dog", a very laid back tune in which Wynton Kelly gives me goosebumps the way he plays the piano. Other notables include "Some Day My Prince Will Come" and "I Thought About You". This album is tighter than gnat booty!

Someday my prince will come...

Buy this recording for one track...TEO!!!!!!! Classic piece of music. Miles and especially Coltrane are at their best!!!! I used to play this song in the 60's and 70's over and over again till I ruined the grooves on my vinyl LP!!!! I still have that LP today. Just buy it... the other songs are great jazz music as well! This has been an overlooked album for too long!

Teo

Teo is 9 minutes of great stuff.Miles first then comes Coltrane and the song just goes places with a great groove.99 cents for this msterpiece will be the best dollar you spent in a long time.

Biography

Born: May 26, 1926 in Alton, IL

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was dazzlingly protean. To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz from the mid-'40s to the early '90s, since he was in the thick of almost every important innovation and stylistic development in the...
