a earful of jazz

Braving the rain, we made a trip to the Embry Hills branch of the Dekalb County Library to pick up a hold that I have eagerly awaited: Miles Davis Quintet, 1965-68: The Complete Columbia Studio Recordings, being the music from the five studio albums by the famous second Miles Davis quintet (with Herbie Hancock on piano) plus alternate takes and unreleased cuts. Rearranged in the order of sessions (as against the sequencing of the original albums), this is an essential set for lovers of jazz (especially post-bop modal jazz) complete with good packagingand liner notes packed with enough information to set the mind spinning.
