These 1951 performances provided the foundation for an evolution in both musical style and documentation. They are among the first examples of the percussive, melodically compact, and blues-based extension of jazz modernism that came to be known as hard bop, and share similar pride of place as examples of the extended performances made possible by the long-playing microgroove record.
Compact disc technology allows for the original 12-inch LP to be supplemented with two tracks, bringing the entire classic session together in one program. Making history with Davis here are second-generation modernists Sonny Rollins, Jackie McLean, and Walter Bishop, each featured in some of his earliest recordings.
