Very good performances from Miles’ bop days, but these were recorded in “primitive” fashion from radio broadcasts.  Casual listeners should avoid this in favor of something with better than bootleg quality sound.  Committed Davis fans will really dig the performances though, and can probably look past the fidelity issues.
