Pretty cool album, feels like an important step in Miles' career. Such amazing personnel too, John Coltrane... Cannonball Adderly.

An album I believe is better and more important than Kind of Blue (*takes shelter from ensuing Jazz snobs*)

Still getting my feet wet with jazz albums, so this is an inexperienced question, but why is this not as well regarded as Davis' other albums? You can definitely tell it served as a canvas for Kind of Blue and that's regarded as the best jazz album of all time.

Ultra cool be bop album featuring heavy hitters; Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. Sounds like everyone is having a blast.
