Album artwork for Miles Davis And The Modern Jazz Giants by Miles Davis

Miles Davis and Milt Jackson only recorded together on a few occasions, but those collaborations always produced superb music. Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants includes one such collaborative effort - a unique 1954 quintet session that also features the great Thelonious Monk on piano. These are the only existing studio recordings presenting Miles and Monk together.

Miles Davis, trumpet / Milt Jackson, vibes / Thelonious Monk, piano / Percy Heath, bass / Kenny Clarke, drums

Original session recorded by Rudy Van Gelder & produced by Bob Weinstock. Hackensack, New Jersey, December 24, 1954.
