Review by siLLy puPPy
COLLABORATOR PSIKE Team
4 stars Long before MILES DAVIS was mastering the art of fusion and creating outstanding influential albums that would change the direction of the jazz world, he was doing his more traditional stuff like on this this album where he does his cool jazz meets hard bop thing. Wanting to hear some of the older pre-Kind Of Blue era material I picked this one randomly solely because of the pretty green album cover that stands out like a the Jolly Green Giant in a cranberry bog. BAGS GROOVE was recorded way back in 1954 but wasn't released until 1957. That was a fruitful year of session recordings since other tracks from the same period led to the album "Miles Davis And The Modern Jazz Giants" as well as there being enough material to throw on Thelonious Monk albums. BAGS was the nickname of vibraphonist Milt Jackson who, despite having the album named after him, only plays on the first two tracks which are different versions of the title track.

There's absolutely nothing remotely rock to be found here. This is pure jazz throughout the whole album but what pleasant and beautiful jazz this is. Thelonious Monk and Horace Silver on piano, Sonny Rollins on tenor sax, Percy Heath on bass, Kenny Clarke on drums and of course Miles himself on trumpet all conspire to make an outstanding album of classic jazz that is satisfying from beginning to end. The music is good enough to merit a much higher rating but there is one thing keeping this album from being a huge classic and that is the fact that two tracks here, namely the title track "Bags Groove" and "But Not For Me" appear here twice each showcasing two different takes of each piece. Although I have no preference of one take over another, the fact is that this makes listening to this as an album from beginning to end a bit of chore especially when the title track takes are over 11 and 9 minutes and also that the takes don't differ significantly from each other. So this basically makes it feel like a leftovers package and since the album came out three years after it was recorded that very well may be exactly what this is.
