3 stars One of the couple of 1956 excellent albums with the first classic quintet including Coltrane, this is, just like the other four collections, very impressive collection first and foremost due to playing, in absence of any original material.

Brass instruments lead the pack with excellent melodies and soloing, piano is more subdued and atmospheric. Davis excells at lyrical playing such as in "Something I dreamed last night" and "When I fall in love" but equally love highly energetic pieces including old standard "Salt peanuts" with all players getting loose but mainly the drummer hitting everywhere in his solo. This is a balanced album that will mainly attract jazz fans and less likely prog fans.
