A rare 1960 appearance by the Miles Davis quintet in England! Featuring Sonny Stitt, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers & Jimmy Cobb. Includes the concert at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, on September 27, 1960 in its integrity.

Stitt plays alto saxophone on "All of You," "Well, You Needn't," "Autumn Leaves," and "The Theme." He plays tenor on the remaining tunes unless indicated otherwise.

Coltrane left the Davis Sextet briefly during July 1959; he was replaced by Jimmy Heath but rejoined the group in August for the Birdland engagement (August 13-September 16). He left for good after the "Jazz at the Philharmonic" European tour (March-April 1960), as did Adderley. Jimmy Heath, Davis's first choice to replace Coltrane, was still on parole and so could not travel freely. Wayne Shorter was committed to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Davis hired Sonny Stitt, who joined the Davis Quintet for a swing through the west in June: Los Angeles Jazz Festival (June 17); Blackhawk Supper Club (June 21-27); Sutherland Hotel Lounge, Chicago (July 9-17); Apollo Theatre, New York (July 22-31); Village Vanguard, New York (August 2-20); Randall's Island Jazz Festival (August 21); Minor Key, Detroit (September 6-11).

Norman Granz arranged for the Davis Quintet to tour Great Britain and a few continental venues in the fall of 1960. Surprisingly few recordings from this tour have surfaced.
