Released:
Label: Fantasy Records
This compiles a hodgepodge of different Miles Davis sessions from the early 1950s. The album foolishly leads things off with sloppy be-bop, but by the time you hit "Smooch" (which features Mingus on piano) and the title cut, things really click into place. Unlike the opening numbers, "Tune-Up" shows that Davis could deftly handle fast bop runs, and he plays "When the Lights Are Low" with such bouncing good cheer that it's hard to connect it to his brooding, surly image.
