Davisiana Review

by Scott Yanow

Recorded in Germany, this early document from his second classic Quintet features Davis, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams stretching the trumpeter's standard repertoire, playing four of his veteran songs ("Autumn Leaves," "Joshua," "So What" and "Milestones") as a pair of adventurous two-song medleys. His young sidemen were really pushing Davis and the result was very stimulating and unpredictable music.
