Wiki

Tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins was present as a member of the Miles Davis sextet (alto saxophonist Jackie McLean, pianist Walter Bishop, bassist Tommy Potter, drummer Art Blakey) on Dig, which was part of a 10/5/51 session, all of which was also on a two-fer. I love this music, but I have to admit it sounds dated. This wasn't Miles Davis' best, but I've always appreciated it for McLean's cutting sax work.
Some great playing on this, especially considering that Davis, Rollins and McLean were all heroin junkies at this point. This was Miles Davis' second recording for Prestige and Jackie Mclean's debut.
