(Mar 3, 2013): Miles Davis and Milt Jackson Quintet/Sextet – Dr. Jackle

From the 1956 album, Quintet/Sextet.  This composition by Jackie McLean opens the LP and is in sextet mode (Davis, Jackson, McLean, Percy Heath, Art Taylor, and Ray Bryant).  The Quintet is the same lineup sans McLean — which is a different superstar lineup than the regular Davis quintet of the time (Davis, Sonny Rollins, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones).  The same four songs on this LP were re-released in 1967 on an album credited to Davis under the title Odyssey!
