Miles Davis Quintet (PRLP 185) is a 10 inch LP album by Miles Davis, released in 1954 by Prestige Records. The album title is not to be confused with either of Davis' later Great Quintets. The three tracks on this LP, and one other, were recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's Studio, Hackensack, New Jersey, on April 3, 1954. This was the first session for Prestige Davis recorded at Gelder's home studio, as he would all his remaining sessions for the label.
With their second album, Miles Smiles, the second Miles Davis Quintet really began to hit their stride, delving deeper into the more adventurous, exploratory side of their signature sound. This is clear as soon as "Orbits" comes crashing out the gate, but it's not just the fast, manic material that has an edge - slower, quieter numbers are mercurial, not just in how they shift melodies and chords, but how the voicing and phrasing never settles into a comfortable groove. And, like its predecessor, ESP, this freshness informs the writing as well, as the originals are memorable, yet open-ended and nervy, setting (and creating) standards for modern bop that were emulated well into the new century. Arguably, this quintet was never better than they are here, when all their strengths are in full bloom.
Miles Smiles is one of the best small group jazz albums that Miles made and the music was daring and ferocious. Considered by many to be one of Miles' perfect records! Reply Notify me 1 Helpful. Marketplace 0 17 For Sale from €1. 8.
The wonderful Post-Bop album Miles Smiles (1967) was recorded by Davis's second great quintet, which featured saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams. The album showcases Davis' deeper exploration of modal performance with looser forms, tempos, and meters. Although it did not follow the conventions of Bop, the album did not follow the formlessness of Free Jazz. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. More MILES DAVIS QUINTET.
The second album by Miles Davis’ Second Great Quintet found the group settling into its aesthetic-freer rhythmically than other hard-bop units, but still rooted in tunes. And what tunes: Here’s the recording that made saxophonist Wayne Shorter’s Footprints into a standard. Drummer Tony Williams daringly switches meters. And Miles is Miles, his burnished sound well justifying the album cover’s satisfied mien. Miles Smiles Miles Davis Quintet.

On Miles Smiles, despite the band leader's period of personal setbacks and health, his band is playing music which is characterized by its exploratory and expansive nature
So queried Anthony Tuttle in the original 1967 liner notes to Miles Smiles, but the sophomore outing from Davis’s second prodigious quintet configuration is anything but a laughing matter. Indeed, Miles Smiles is the apex of post-bop intuitive interplay, and Mobile Fidelity’s SACD brings out the best sonic detail of Teo Macero’s top-shelf production for this modal-exploratory master class
