This contains two of the classic Miles Davis sessions of 1954 which made all the critics who hailed his appearance at the 1955 Newport Jazz Festival a "comeback" seem like a pack of Rip Van Winkles. "Walkin'" and "Blue 'n' Boogie" are quintessential blues jams with all the pluses and none of the minuses of that genre. The solos by Davis, J.J. Johnson, Lucky Thompson, and Horace Silver are electric and the ensemble punches powerfully. The date with Bird-fancier Davey Schildkraut finds Miles's magic mute materializing in front of the fine Silver/Percy Heath/Kenny Clarke rhythm section. With J.J. Johnson, Lucky Thompson, Horace Silver, Percy Heath, Kenny Clarke, Davey Schildkraut. Tracks: Walkin', Blue 'n' Boogie, Solar, You Don't Know What Love Is, Love Me or Leave Me.
