Info for Miles Davis And The Modern Jazz Giants

Recorded in 1954, as Miles Davis was just beginning his 1950's peak with the Prestige label, „Modern Jazz Giants“ is aptly named. Miles, his horn clear and crisp, is joined by three-fourths of the original Modern Jazz Quartet as well as bebop piano innovator Thelonious Monk.

Oddly enough, Monk and Miles mixed like oil and water, but one can't tell from the recorded results--they're all at at the top of their game in a seminal session rich with inspired soloing and elegant swing. Davis was just starting to hone his mature style, maintaining his beautiful lyricism while cutting down on the number of notes played.
