Recorded in the summer of 1955, this session was a half-year after the famed meeting of Davis and Jackson with Thelonious Monk on Christmas Eve 1954. The special chemistry of Miles and Milt is further enhanced on the two numbers written by Jackie McLean where the composer's alto saxophone makes the group a sextet. McLean is yet another of the young talents fostered by Davis. Ray Bryant, in his introduction to a wider jazz audience, is also represented by one tune. The second number is Thad Jones.

with Jackie McLean, Ray Bryant, Percy Heath, Arthur Taylor
