Audio Beat Rated 3.5/5 Music, 4/5 Sound!

In 1963, Miles Davis was at a transitional point in his career, without a regular group and wondering what his future musical direction would be. At the time he recorded the music heard on this disc, he was in the process of forming a new band, as can be seen from the personnel: tenor saxophonist George Coleman, Victor Feldman (who turned down the job) and Herbie Hancock on pianos, bassist Ron Carter, and Frank Butler and Tony Williams on drums. Recorded at two separate sessions, this set is highlighted by the classic "Seven Steps To Heaven," "Joshua" and slow passionate versions of "Basin Street Blues" and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home."

"These recordings [APLP8851-45 Miles Davis Seven Steps To Heaven, APLP8456-45 Miles Davis Someday My Prince Will Come] don't resolve the debate over which version of the Miles Davis Quintet was best. In fact, they only stir that wonderful pot all the more." – Marc Mickelson,, 3.5/5 Music, 4/5 Sound!
