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.

Clean, dynamic, very realistic sound, great pressing. Highly recommended. No hiss, pops, cracklings, worth the money as can be bought at dodax.fr for 9,99 EUR shipping included ;-)

This pressing sounds great and these discs are easy to find in great condition because the inner sleeves are high quality. The pressing like many other Columbia Jazz Masterpiece releases can be found for very inexpensive prices.

Is this Speakers Corner variant still in print? I havent managed to order this from a local record store for years. Yesterday it was just standing there (new and sealed) - the insert seems to be recent too, definitely not from 2008.

I had to send this Mono MoFi record back to the vendor, because of bad distortions in high frequencies. I was very sad because this is one of my favorite Miles LPs. The reason for distortion could have been caused by my Stereo Linn MM Adikt system.

What an LP: Apart from the typical rather fast second track (strangely enough most miles davis albums have a faster track at A2. Think of Freddy Freeloader on Kind of Blue or salt peanuts on steamin) it's so smooth and quiet, that you'd need an inner city penthouse with a perfect skyline view, a glas of good scotch and a beautiful girl next to you, to enjoy it properly. But even if you have neither, it still is one of the best albums of good old Miles. It just transports so much feeling, that you can instantly imagine miles playing the trumpet, eyes closed totally concentrated on the notes that gently sweep from his trumpet through the mic onto the record and from there into your ears. If you had to put together a list of the top 5 jazz records, this album would have to be on there. Even at a higher ranking than kind of blue, perhaps.

Beautiful sound on this MoFi reissue. The sound is warm and bright and oh so full. Very dynamic with a wide soundstage that gives the recording more of a live jazz club feel. A great remaster for a great record. Recommend for any fan of jazz.
