Miles Davis Quartet: prLP 161

Not one of the more important releases from Miles' heroine-fueled blue period of the early 50's, but this reissue on colored 10" vinyl for RSD Black Friday 2011 is my first Miles Davis record.  

I probably should have started with Kind of Blue.

From the back cover: 

This album is composed of two different sessions. The first was recorded on May 19, 1953 with personnel consisting of Miles Davis, trumpet; John Lewis, piano; Charlie Mingus, bass, piano (on SMOOCH only); Percy Heath, bass; Max Roach, drums.
