Download Miles Davis & John Coltrane - The Best Of Miles Davis & John Coltrane (1955-1961)

This compilation is taken from the masterful and wondrous box set issued late in the year It is assembled with the kind of care only producers such as Bob Belden and Michael Cuscuna could muster. Featuring nine selections, it begins with the first recorded appearance of the new Miles Davis Quintet in that featured the two principals, Red GarlandPaul Chambersand Philly Joe Jones. Aside from an alternate take of "Straight, No Chaser" and the inclusion of "Dear Old Stockholm" -- standard enough in the quintet's repertoire but not a signature number -- the disc traces the evolution of the band through its extension into a sextet.

The band evolved further with the departures of Red Garland and Philly Joe Joneswho were replaced by drummer Jimmy Cobb and Bill Evans for the Kind of Blue recording -- which also included piano contributions from Wynton Kelly I Got Rhythm - André van Duin - The Medleys, who would later replace Evans.

Tracks from that classic session included here are "So What" and "Blue in Green. Hank Mobley joined the band to replace Adderley and Kelly was the band's full-time pianist.

The last cut, "Someday My Prince Will Come," features the most searing and melodic solo Coltrane ever played during his tenure with Davis. De Que Te Quiero Te Quiero - Sexteto Juventud - Brujeria intensity is white hot and his lyricism is unrivaled.

It was the way to go out -- swinging. The choices here may be obvious, but there is the alternate take of "Straight, No Chaser" that is worthy as an unreleased gem.
