After George Coleman left the Miles Davis Quintet, tenor saxophonist Sam Rivers took his place for a short period including a tour of Japan. Davis did not care for Rivers' avant-garde style (they failed to develop any chemistry) and soon replaced him, but this live LP (originally only issued in Japan) survived to document this brief association. The music (five lengthy versions of standards) is actually of high quality, with both Davis and Rivers in fine form and the young rhythm section (pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams) pushing the trumpeter/leader to open up his style. In 2005 the set was remastered and reissued by Sony's Legacy imprint. Other than sound, and a deluxe package that offers many new photographs and essays by jazz critics who attended the concert, is the inclusion of "Go-Go (Theme and Announcement)" at the end of the set for historical purposes. ~ Scott Yanow and Thom Jurek
