This is Miles Davis' debut with Columbia records, and since 1955, the year in which "Round About Midnight" was released, neither Columbia nor the world of jazz would remain the same.

While others point to "Kind of Blue" as his classic, some of Davis' most thrilling work can be found here.

On this album, Davis ropes in John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones to form a quintet that would stand as a tremendous force to be reckoned with.

"Ah-Leu-Cha" bristles with energy, and it brilliantly shows the interplay between Davis and Coltrane throughout the track.

There's also the relaxed cool of "Bye Bye Blackbird" and the uptempo bounce of "Tadd's Delight," which has nice piano work from Red Garland and head-bobbing bass from Paul Chambers.

But, of course, the LP's towering moment is the title track, brilliantly adapted by the quintet. It would serve as one of THE greatest pieces of work in Miles' catalogue.

I can seriously listen to this LP fifty gazillion times and never tire of it. And that's the way all great albums should be. After each listen, "Round About Midnight" reveals something new that I didn't catch before.


Miles Davis - Bye Bye Blackbird

He's the man! What a soft spoken trumpet!
