Notes

Product Notes: 180 gram. High Defnition Vinyl Pressing For Super Fidelity. Direct Metal Mastering. "Back in New York, Cannonball, who had signed a deal to do a record, asked me to play on the date, which I did as a favour. The record was called Somethin' Else and was very nice." Miles Davis included the above brief comment about this LP in his autobiography. And it was truly a very nice record. In fact, even though it wasn't regarded at the time as more than a regular recording session by professional jazzmen - like Dom Cerulli states in his review for Down Beat - the popularity of this LP grew until it came to be considered one of the best small group sessions ever. It is a mystery why some sessions are capable of generating such magic while others are not, but all of the tunes that constitute Somethin' Else (including "Allison's Uncle", also known as "Bangoon", a tune recorded the same day but not issued on the original LP) are of the same consistent quality and create a unique mood. In fact, one of the selections, the reading of the standard "Autumn Leaves", with it's particular intro/finale, has become the most famous version of that tune in jazz history.
