4 stars Second Miles Davis albums with his new Quintet is almost excellent album of post-bop jazz. Miles continues to explore new sounds and structures, his music is gone from cool jazz and hard-bop to more modern sound, and the musicians are all future stars: Herbie Hancock ( piano),Ron Carter ( bass),Wayne Shorter ( saxophone) and Tony Williams ( drums). All of them very soon will be a part of jazz-fusion revolution. But don't be mistaken - this album is still far from that.

Excellent musicianship will please any post-bop lover. One of the great albums from pre-fusion era.
