Another close to flawless album. If Miles Davis's "Kind of Blue" is an album made in heaven, this is surely an album made on earth because one can find so much humanity in it. Even though Miles Davis is also featured in the cast, one can find so much human emotion in especially Adderly and Hank Jones' playing. Even Miles Davis has toned down and become down to earth. The first song "Autumn Leaves" is just a stunning opening. The rest of the album has nothing but good jazz. The whole album is a real treat. Get the MFSL version or the Rudy Van Gelder remastered version.
