Overview

This remastered set features the first recorded sessions from the legendary bebop saxophonist and is an incredible snapshot of a burgeoning young artist. Though the personnel is hotly and notoriously debated, the most common consensus of who appears on this album is stunning nonetheless. Miles Davis, from his earlier days on the scene? Check. Drumming pioneer Max Roach? Check. Beloved trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie? Check. Both the master takes and additional alternate takes, as presented for the original release, are included here.
