EDITORS’ NOTES

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.”
