Miles Davis in St. Louis

This collector's LP mostly features the 1963 Miles Davis Quintet (which included tenor-saxophonist George Coleman, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Tony Williams) during a live apperance in St. Louis. The previously unissued music is reasonably well-recorded and gives listeners additional versions of such standards as "I Thought About You," "All Blues" and "Seven Steps to Heaven." This LP is rounded out by a rendition of "Like Someone to Love" from 1961 that showcases the young Herbie Hancock with a trio, two years before he first joined Davis's group.
