Miles Davis, Sonny Stitt - Olympia, October 11th 1960        (3 of 4 found this review helpful)
  June 27, 2005

Great live sound John Coltrane's last recording with Miles. Coltrane's replacement in the band, Sonny Stitt, has a more subdued style here. Seven of the great Miles Davis 50's tunes in two live dates. This is one to get if you enjoy jazz.

Mozart: Flute Concertos, Symphony No. 41 - Pearlman          (6 of 6 found this review helpful)
  February 15, 2005

This is another fine disc from Boston Baroque and Telarc, with a program of 2 flute concertos and the Jupiter symphony.
