Miles Davis - 'Round About Midnight mp3 album

Round About Midnight is an album by jazz trumpeter Miles Davis that was released by Columbia in March 1957. At the Newport Jazz Festival in 1955, Davis performed the song "'Round Midnight" as part of an all-star jam session, with the song's composer Thelonious Monk, along with Connie Kay and Percy Heath of the Modern Jazz Quartet, Zoot Sims, and Gerry Mulligan. Davis's solo received a positive reception from many jazz fans and critics

The date was also an ending of sorts because by the time of the album's release, Davis had already broken up the band, which re-formed with Cannonball Adderley a year later as a sextet, but it was a tense year. Musically, this sound is as unusual and as beautiful as it was when issued in 1956. Davis had already led the charge through two changes in jazz - both cool jazz and hard bop - and was beginning to move in another direction here that wouldn't be defined for another two years.

Recording sessions took place at Columbia Studio D on October 26 1955, and at Columbia's 30th Street Studio on June 5 and September 10 1956. Round About Midnight' is widely recognized by jazz critics as a landmark album in hard bop and one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. On April 17 2001, Sony reissued the album for compact disc on its Columbia/Legacy label, which featured 24-bit remastering and included bonus tracks and master takes from the initial sessions.

'Round Midnight" is a 1944 composition by pianist Thelonious Monk that quickly became a jazz standard and has been recorded by a wide variety of artists. A version recorded by Monk's quintet was added to the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1993. It is the most recorded jazz standard composed by a jazz musician. It is thought that Monk composed the song sometime in 1940 or 1941.

Essential Listening Nominations. Miles Davis ‘Round About Midnight is probably one recording I consider essential in any modern jazz collection. That is not to say there aren’t many other good records, even lots of other great records. Kenny Dorham – Quiet Kenny is a great selection indeed, love this album, fits any mood. Strange stereo mix thoug. sually play it in mono. Miles Davis – Kind of Blue John Coltrane – Blue Train Art Pepper – Meets the Rhythm Section Cannonball Adderley – Something Else Hank Mobley – Soul Station. And I’m guessing that LJC’s may be below: Grant Green – Idle Moments Miles Davis – Round About Midnight Miles Davis – Kind of Blue John Coltrane – Blue Train Art Pepper – Meets the Rhythm Section. Regardless, lots of things on these lists I have yet to hear which is most exciting! Thanks everyone!

Miles Davis’ muted trumpet, mellow and sharp all at once, is one of midcentury jazz’s most iconic textures. The bandleader drapes this classic sound all over Thelonious Monk’s ‘Round Midnight, the opening track on this record, which debuts Davis’ first great quintet. Philly Joe Jones’ drumming keeps things swinging brightly, while John Coltrane’s robust tenor sax lines give heft to the group’s journey through tunes like Charlie Parker’s Ah-Leu-Cha. Miles Davis’ muted trumpet, mellow and sharp all at once, is one of midcentury jazz’s most iconic textures.

Round About Midnight is one of Miles Davis' true masterpieces; it's an album of focused, passionate numbers that showcase a post-bop transformation that was taking place in the 1950's. Here, Miles is in top form with his signature trumpet, while John Coltrane adds the tenor sax. Throw in great piano by Red Garland, and what you have is relaxing, yet moving songs that remind me of lounge music at some hotel during happy hour. In a lot of ways, 'Round About Midnight is a definitive jazz album, much in the same manner as Kind of Blue
