Background: Released in 1962, Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall was Davis’ first live album for Columbia. While the label adopted stereo fairly early, this recording was originally issued only in mono and rechanneled stereo.
In 1998, Columbia/Legacy reissued Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall as a double-disc set that contained all of the music performed at the concert from May 19, 1961. Davis is captured with his transitional small combo featuring Hank Mobley, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb, as well as with the Gil Evans Orchestra. It was one of only two concerts Davis and Evans performed together, and that alone makes the album necessary for collectors, but the music itself is terrific.
