3.5 greatAlabaster Jones | August 24th 16

Dig just goes to show you that even though very little of what Miles Davis recorded in the early 50's is all that incredible, you'd be hard pressed to find a song that wasn't at the very least an enjoyable listen. These tracks, compiled from a 1951 recording session at Apex, are a simple, yet effective bunch, the title-track being the first song that Jackie McLean ever wrote and played on. The first half of the album features some great hard bop that really swings, while the second half slows things down to take a bluesier approach, which I'm sure can be surmised through the track titles alone. Sonny Rollins is also heavily featured on tenor sax, and though compositionally these tracks might just be pretty standard fare, they're all very good, with the title-track even being excellent. If you want a good slab of early 50's Davis, you really can't go wrong with Dig.
