***** Down Beat, 1958, Legrand Jazz
"The roster is impressive, covering most of the modern greats and near-greats. The Miles sides are superb. The writing is imaginative, tinged with the languid air of Gil Evans at his most soulful, and yet with something more." - Dom Cerulli

***** Down Beat, 1958, Ascenseur pour l' échafaud
"An absolutely fascinating release. Some of the very best, if not the best, Miles solos are contained on this LR" — Ralph J. Gleason
