From Fischman
One of the best of early Miles. Good compositions well delivered, especially by the back line.

While solid Jazz, I didn't get an eargasm from it.

'Round About Midnight was the first album by Davis on Columbia, where he would stay for 30 years. It features saxophonist John Coltrane, who had not yet become an icon. The interplay between the two here is great, with Davis' melodies being answered by Coltrane's energetic solos. The rhythm section of Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones never wavers.

A true jazz classic. One of many Davis albums that are necessary for anyone who's a fan. A beautiful piece of work.
