Blue Haze documents two Prestige sessions from May 1953 and March 1954 (plus "I'll Remember April," with altoist Davey Schildkraut, from the April 3, 1954 session that yielded half of Walkin'). During this time, a resurgent Miles Davis began to zero in on his own style and sound, taking significant steps away from the rhythmic and harmonic devices of his mentor Dizzy Gillespie. Paralleling his recorded work for Blue Note, Davis was also working with some of the greatest rhythm players in the history of jazz. Blue Haze finds Davis the lone featured horn

Composed By – Miles Davis. Recorded in Englewood Cliffs, NJ; April 3, 1954 ( and March 15, 1954 ( 3, 5); New York City; May 19, 1953 ( 6 to 8).

Blue Haze" is an album recorded in 1953 and 1954 by Miles Davis for Prestige Records. The first track on the album is from the 3 April 1954 session which resulted in half of the album Walkin' (and was originally included on the 10" LP Miles Davis Quintet (PRLP 185)). The remainder is the result of two sessions on May 19, 1953 and March 15, 1954, the first being a quartet with John Lewis on piano curiously replaced on "Smootch" by its co-composer Charles Mingus Percy Heath, the bassist throughout the album, and Max Roach on drums

Miles Davis' "Blue Haze" was recorded from May 1953 through April 1954. It's a delightful early Davis set that probably sounded wildly different upon its release, but with 60+ years on the recording, now plays with delicious abandon. Blue Haze is a sleeper album and an old one. There are no "bad" cuts. The entire album is good listening and good music to live by.
