Release Date:09/07/2010;Notes:High-definition premium 180gm vinyl pressing of this classic Jazz album. Although they were both seminal figures in the development of modern and cool jazz (and although both played together a lot, e.g., at Birdland in the early fifties), Miles Davis and Milt Jackson only recorded together on a few occasions. Their studio works originally appeared divided onto three different albums. While their 1955 session was issued in it's complete form on the LP Miles Davis All Star Sextet/Quintet, the results from the famous Miles/Milt/Monk encounter were divided onto two different albums, one titled Bags' Groove (containing only the two takes of the title track plus a quintet session with Sonny Rollins recorded on June 29, 1954) and Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants (which had the rest of the music from that session plus a version of "Round Midnight" recorded at the same sessions as the music from the celebrated Cookin', Relaxin', Workin'... series with John Coltrane). However, given it's musical and historical importance, the Miles/Milt/Monk session would soon be included in it's entirety on a long LP (Prestige PR7650), whose contents and cover have been reproduced here.
