The Musings of Miles, recorded in a quartet format with Miles as the only horn, also features Red Garland on piano, the great Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. Part of the rhythm section of this quartet became the nucleus of the group that would later be known as Miles’ “First Great Quintet”. Garland and Jones would soon be in Miles’ group, although the fi ery Pettiford proved too diffi cult for the trumpeter to handle and was quickly succeeded by Paul Chambers. The set contains four standards, a blues titled “Green Haze” and Miles’ tune “I Didn’t”, which was the trumpeter’s humorous response to Thelonious Monk’s “Well You Needn’t”. “A Night in Tunisia” features Philly Joe Jones playing with special drum sticks which had bells riveted to the shaft. The only other two quartet recordings by Miles with Oscar Pettiford have been added here as a bonus.
