The Legendary Prestige Quintet Sessions (4CD)

We are told:

Remastered in 2006, and with insightful liner notes by Bob Blumenthal, These Miles Davis Quintet Prestige recordings are a box set reissue of the 2006 release except the 4CDs and booklet are housed in a smaller CD sized package which is CD shelf friendly.
Recorded in three sessions by the legendary engineer Rudy Van Gelder at his Hackensack, New Jersey studio to simulate “typical” nightclub sets, virtually every tune has become a classic. The mercurial trumpeter’s band is cookin’ on “Tune Up,” “Oleo,” and “Salt Peanuts” (with Philly Joe’s solo a model of percussive excitement and musicality); workin’ on “Four,” “Blues by Five,” and “Trane’s Blues”; relaxin’ on “When Lights Are Low,” “Surrey with the Fringe on Top,” and “In Your Own Sweet Way”; and steamin’ on signature ballads such as “It Never Entered My Mind,” “’Round Midnight,” and “My Funny Valentine.”
Bonus disc 4 includes live dates from the The Hudson Theatre, New York, The Blue Note, Philadelphia & Cafe Bohemia, New York.
