“Miles Davis began playing with Sonny Rollins around 1949-50, shortly after the trumpeter left his chair in the Charlie Parker Quintet. After I quit playing with Bird, wrote Miles in his Autobiography, I just went across the street and got a job at the Onyx Club. I got Sonny Rollins on tenor saxophone, Roy Haynes on drums, Percy Heath on bass, and Walter Bishop on piano. I tried not to look back. Their existing recorded output, however, dates between 1951 and 1957. This 1951 session finds them in great form playing along other jazz masters such as Jackie McLean, Walter Bishop, Jr., and Art Blakey. Two songs that complete the session but were not included on the original LP have been added as a bonus, among them Conception, on which the great Charles Mingus replaces Tommy Potter on bass.”
