Sept Pas Vers Le Ciel

Miles Davis • LP


This the original French edition of “Seven Steps To Heaven” from 1963.

With his quintet disbanded, and a tour scheduled for the West Coast, Miles hired George Coleman, who had been recommended by John Coltrane, and Ron Carter, a young graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and very active in the New York scene. Frank Butler (at the time the top black drummer in L.A.) and Victor Feldman (an English pianist) joined them for a recording session. The band’s repertoire reflected Feldman’s influence. However, only three of the four ballads (played by the quartet without the saxophone) were included in the album. Miles re-recorded the three other more spirited pieces with Tony Williams, the young drummer he had just discovered through Jackie McLean when he returned to New York. Victor Feldman stayed in California, and Herbie Hancock completed this new quintet. For two days, Miles listened to them rehearse over his apartment’s intercom. On the third day, he joined them, and the next day he brought them into the studio. He knew that this group would bring down the house.
