Organised jam sessions at New York’s legendary Birdland Club were broadcast twice weekly during the late ’40’s and early ’50’s and a baker’s dozen of tracks featuring the magnificent Miles Davis have been selected for this collection. The various pick-up line-ups included all the great jazz musicians of the era, and tenor sax genius Stan Getz can be heard here on several tracks beautifully complimenting Miles’ wonderful trumpet excursions. This album has been early issued on CD under the titles “Miles Davis: The Birdland Sessions” (1994), “Miles Davis: Out Of The Blue” (1997), “Miles Davis featuring Stan Getz : Birdland Days” (1991), “Miles Davis, Stan Getz: Move” (2003).

This is a hard blowing bop session from 1950 propelled along by the driving drums of Art Blakey and featuring Stan Getz pre ultra-cool. The sound quality isn’t perfect but it is certainly very listenable and very enjoyable. The band never lets up and the energy is high as they hit ‘That Old Black Magic’, ‘Half Nelson’ and more with JJ Johnson offering a couple of nimble trombone solos alongside the young Miles’ straight ahead blowing.
