Brilliant album, important as it's the only session I know of where Monk and Davis recorded together (The track Bags Groove from this session appears on the Bag's Groove album), and fairly important in the development of Miles Davis' sound, so therefore important in the development of Jazz. Influenced by Ahmad Jamal, it's here that Davis first creates the space in the sound, that he famously "argues" with Monk about on "The Man I Love (Take 1)". Davis points out that it wasn't an argument, he was just asking Monk to lay out to create space. A fitting high for the end of 1954 for Davis, the year he quit heroin. "Round About Midnight " is from a 1956 recording with his Quintet featuring Coltrane.
