At Newport 1958

At Newport 1958

This live recording is the feverish twin of 1958’s comparatively cool Milestones. If you think that album’s studio take of “Two Bass Hit” brings the hard-bop energy, check out the concert version. On the latter, Coltrane’s shifts in harmony and dynamics show a move toward a greater intensity heard on his later albums, like Giant Steps. Miles’ trumpet cooks throughout the session, but he also flaunts his expressive range on “Fran-Dance,” producing melodic lines full of blues and balladry.
