Notes:
It was his debut on Columbia Records, and was originally released in March 1957 (CL 949). The album took its name from the Thelonious Monk song "Round Midnight".

Recording sessions took place at Columbia Studio D on October 26 1955, and at Columbia's 30th Street Studio on June 5 and September 10 1956. 'Round About Midnight' is widely recognized by jazz critics as a landmark album in hard bop and one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. On April 17 2001, Sony reissued the album for compact disc on its Columbia/Legacy label, which featured 24-bit remastering and included bonus tracks and master takes from the initial sessions. A further two-disc reissue on June 14, 2005, was released, as part of Sony's Legacy Edition series, which featured the 2001 reissue and a second disc containing Davis' celebrated Newport Jazz Festival of 1955 performance of "'Round Midnight", along with a recording of the quintet's set from the 1956 Pacific Jazz Festival.

Although released in '57, this includes the first recordings of his first great quintet from '55. Compared to the legendary sessions recorded for Prestige in '56 it's all a bit flat really, and for me slightly disappointing - I prefer the cut of 'Round Midnight that they used on the Miles Davis and The Modern Jazz Giants release. That said, analysing the album in isolation, it's still a good album and worth purchasing for any fans of Davis, Coltrane et al.

In my booklet, pages have been printed in the wrong order. At the bottom of one page it says "Some of Miles' fans expressed shock" and that sentence continues at the top 3 pages further. Re-inserting the pages in the correct order is not possible since this is a standard booklet with 4 pages per paper (2 sided + lef/right with a fold + stable in the middle).
Didn't know MFSL were so sloppy, definitely not something I expected in a "luxury" product like this.

great record, of course. but, i`m asking me, am i the only one with a copy (Columbia ‎– CJ 40610) with tracks: 1 'Round Midnight 2 Ah-Leu-Cha 3 Bye Bye Blackbird (!!!) 4 Bye Bye Blackbird 5 Tadd's Delight 6 Dear Old Stockholm ? Yes, Bye Bye Blackbird twice, no All of You. Found nowhere anything about this.
