Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants includes sessions recorded the same day as those on Bags Groove. It features saxophonist John Coltrane, vibraphonist Milt Jackson, pianist Thelonious Monk, bassist Percy Heath, and drummer Kenny Clarke. Highlights includes "The Man I Love", "Bemsha Swing" and "Swing Spring".
Despite what internal friction might have existed between Miles and Monk when these sessions were recorded, the quality of play on these tracks are breathtaking, with Miles and Jackson coming to the fore. Monk's playing on his own "Bemsha Swing" is top rate, with his idiosyncratic style fitting in perfectly with the ensemble.
