More Miles Davis
More Recordings by Rudy Van Gelder
- Spacious, sweet and positively dripping with ambience – talk about Tubey Magic, the liquidity of the sound here is positively uncanny
- This Prestige Two-Fer simply combines two complete Miles Davis titles recorded by Rudy Van Gelder in 1955 – ‘The Musings of Miles’ and ‘Miles’
- The 1976 transfers of tape to disc by David Turner are superb in all respects – this is remastering done right
- 4 stars: “… it is for the excellent rhythm sections and the playing of Miles Davis that this two-fer is highly recommended.”
- If you’re a fan of Miles, this All Tube MONO Recording from 1955 belongs in your collection.
