"Although they were both seminal figures in the development of modern and cool jazz (and although both played together a lot, e.g., at Birdland in the early fifties), Miles Davis and Milt Jackson only recorded together on a few occasions. As to be expected, their recordings together produced splendid music. Bags’ Groove contained two takes of the title track plus a quintet session with Sonny Rollins recorded on June 29, 1954. The Davis/Jackson/Monk session was a source of controversy. Miles’ discusses his memory of the date in his autobiography: “On Christmas Eve, 1954, I went into the studio with Milt Jackson, Thelonious Monk, Percy Heath, and Kenny Clarke. We went out to Rudy Van Gelder’s Hackensack studio to record. Now, there’s a lot of misunderstanding that has gotten around this recording date, about the tension and the anger that was supposed to have been between Thelonious Monk and me. Mostly it is bullshit and rumors that people just kept repeating until it has become fact. What did happen on that day was that we all played some great music.” Both tracks of “Bags’ Groove” come from that session, which also produced the music from the LP Miles Davis & The Modern Jazz Giants.
