Miles Davis Sextet's set recorded live at Newport Jazz Festival in 1958. Thelonious Monk Quartet's set recorded live at Newport Jazz Festival in 1963. 

Originally released 1963 on CS 8978.


The Davis tracks are Ah-Leu-Cha; Straight, No Chaser; Fran-Dance; Two Bass Hit; Bye, Bye Blackbird and The (Miles') Theme. The band - Cannonball Adderley (alto sax), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Bill Evans (piano), Paul Chambers (bass), Jimmy Cobb (drums) - are in outstanding form for the July 3, 1958, gig.

Monk - Blue Monk, Nutty, - has a unique group that includes Pee Wee Russell (clarinet), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), Butch Warren (bass) and Frankie Dunlop (drums).

The pair of legends cure the summertime blues with incredible performances before appreciative - and knowledgeable - fans.

Miles & Monk at Newport was a combined album of a Miles Davis appearance at Newport with an appearance of Thelonious Monk, from the LP era. Despite the title, the two artists do not perform together on the LP, and they are represented on each side by separate live appearances at the Newport Jazz Festival.

On the first side of the LP was a series of high tempo performances of bebop tunes and other staples of the Davis live repertoire from 1958. The performance was contemporaneous with Davis' Milestones album. Aside from the 1973 release Jazz at the Plaza (also a 1958 concert) during the LP era, this was the only legitimate (non-bootleg) recording of a live Davis combo performance earlier than the 1960 Blackhawk recordings.
As such, this performance and Jazz at the Plaza were the only legitimate live recordings representing the Kind of Blue sextet. On the second side were a few numbers by Thelonious Monk's combo, from a 1963 Newport appearance. It featured the idiosyncratic appearance by clarinetist Pee Wee Russell.
