Miles Davis 1954


Miles Davis 1954, hand-drawn recording with Miles Davis Quartet in New Jersey; March 6, 1954 – age 27.

Miles Davis, Vol. 3 (BLP 5040) is the sixth studio album by musician Miles Davis.
It was released in 1954, as a 10 inch LP album. It consists of the third and last of three sessions recorded for Blue Note Records.

The six tracks were recorded at Rudy Van Gelder’s Studio, Hackensack, New Jersey, on March 6, 1954.

For the session he used exactly the same quartet he would again record with seven days later for side 2 of the Miles Davis Quartet LP (PRLP 161), released by Prestige.
Davis says in his autobiography that these were his first recording sessions after successfully quitting his heroin habit, and that he arranged them both quickly as he needed money fast, and both Blue Note’s Alfred Lion and Prestige’s Bob Weinstock had given him a fair chance earlier when his reputation was in decline.
This was also the first of several sessions Davis would record with the young Horace Silver, whom he liked for his funky style of playing.
