Lovely, totally improvised music, never leaving tonal centers, but cliché-free. recommended for all McNeill fans.

Lots of talented musicians were on hand for this concert, but for me, the show was stolen by Miss Mildred Bailey and her "Downhearted Blues", yes, yes.

Bill Evans - Conversations with Myself: I've probably only listened to this 3 or 4 times before this in 10+ years.  I think that was my loss, as it is beautiful.

The 4 Prestiges "Cookin´, Relaxin´, Workin´ and Steamin´ always have been favourites of mine, they would be records for the "Island". Somehow I find the first Prestige record of the 1.st Quintet, simply called "Miles" not so exiting like those four records.

"Steamin´" was one of the very first "jazz records" I had, I think the other records were available only on expensive japanese LP pressings.

Agreement on the "island" status ....  bought these as Victor Japan reissues in the later 70's ....

But Gheorghe and Soulpope ... Surely the GERMAN Bellaphon license-pressed Prestige reissues must have been available in Austria too at that time. "Steamin'" was on Bellaphon BJS 4054 throughout the second half of the 70s. And during the same period "Cookin'" and "Relaxin'" were available on the Bellaphon BLST 6511 twofer (= Prestige 24001).

There was also the ‘Complete Prestige Recordings’ 12LP set around that time - maybe very early 1980s. That was how I picked them up - from Mole as a sleeveless set at their annual sale, £1.50 per LP I think.

True .... but my trusted dealer of "Red Octopus Records" fame had the japanese beauties available .... I didn't hesitate for a minute ....

Again an "Island record". One of the best, if I could keep only one Wayne Shorter BN I´d keep this one.

@Big Beat Steve.: Yes it was Bellaphone Import. The "Steaming" was as a single LP with another cover photo than the original Steamin, and others were twofers (right, Prestige 24000 series. 

I had one of it with a cover photo of Miles in the 70´s at the boxing gym, which has nothing to do with the content, since the content was most of the pre 55 Miles, which I later purchased as "Dig", "Miles and Horns" "Blue Haze" "Walkin" "Bag´s Groove" and "Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants...... (I hope I didn´t forgether any). 

One record that always was particular interesting for me was "Musings of Miles" since it points out torward the first classic quintet, with Garland and Philly J.J. on it....
