Wax Love present a reissue of Miles Davis's At Newport 1958, originally released in 1958. Featuring the majority of the band that would, a year later, release the absolute pinnacle of modal jazz, Kind Of Blue, Davis brought his group to the Newport festival in 1958 for a brilliant performance. Though the group doesn't play any songs from that record, instead focusing on classics like "Straight No Chaser" and "Bye Bye Blackbird", one can hear the whispers of that LP. Essential live jazz from the greatest trumpet player of all time.
"It's obvious Davis was pulling out all the stops for this audience, bringing down the house, and perhaps realizing himself just what this band was capable of musically." - AllMusic
