Miles Davis and "The Second Great Quintet": "E.S.P."

This album was the first domestically released album by Miles Davis' "Second Great Quintet" which included tenor saxophonist/composer Wayne Shorter, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Tony Williams. This album indicated a new change for Miles Davis in that a lot of his old standard repertoire was being replaced by compositions by himself and the band including works by Shorter, Hancock, and Carter. This album represents that change and it was recorded over a three day period in Los Angeles in January of 1965. It is a milestone album not only because of the new repertoire but of the inspired and fresh playing of the group. Seven new compositions are featured by everyone in the band save for Williams and it represents a step forward by one of Jazz music's great innovators....Miles Dewey Davis.
