About this album

‘Round About Midnight is an album by jazz musician Miles Davis. It was his debut on Columbia Records, and was originally released in March 1957 (CL 949). The album took its name from the Thelonious Monk song “‘Round Midnight”. Recording sessions took place at Columbia Studio D on October 26, 1955, and at Columbia’s 30th Street Studio on June 5 and September 10, 1956. ‘Round About Midnight is widely recognized by jazz critics as a landmark album in hard bop and one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. On April 17, 2001, Sony reissued the album for compact disc on its Columbia/Legacy label, which featured 24-bit remastering and included bonus tracks and master takes from the initial sessions. A further two-disc reissue on June 14, 2005, was released, as part of Sony’s Legacy Edition series, which featured the 2001 reissue and a second disc containing Davis’ celebrated Newport Jazz Festival of 1955 performance of “‘Round Midnight”, along with a recording of the quintet’s set from the 1956 Pacific Jazz Festival.

At the Newport Jazz Festival in 1955, Davis performed the song “‘Round Midnight” as part of an all-star jam session, with the song’s composer Thelonious Monk, along with Connie Kay and Percy Heath of the Modern Jazz Quartet, Zoot Sims, and Gerry Mulligan.

    Miles' first recording for Columbia featuring a promising new jazz quintet that would for all time define jazz of the 1950s: small band, flexibility, and an altogether fresh sense of style, musical and personal. Miles' comeback LP from a narcotics addiction. Miles Davis - Trumpet / John Coltrane - Tenor Saxophone / Red Garland - Piano / Paul Chambers - Bass / Philly Joe Jones - Drums
