Sanborn's '83 release brought a new meaning to late night or midnight music listening ! By no means is this elevator muzak, either ! In fact, Sanborn was on the cutting edge in using drum machines and synthesizer arrangements without stifling his sax playing or throwing the whole project out of whack. Sanborn's playing is very upfront and sharp ! While the recording may sound dated, it is only in a very good positive way to demonstrate what is lacking in some of today's so-called pop-jazz or r & b instrumentalists.
This 2010 release presents two never before released performances in Germany by the great Miles Davis Quintet with John Coltrane. Among the highlights are three different extended performances of 'So What' (two sets were played at the first concert) and a new reading of the classic ''Round Midnight'.
