Miles Davis Signed Album

Estimate: $5000+


'Round About Midnight album (Columbia PC 8649) by Miles Davis, signed on the front cover in white paint pen. In fine condition. The record is included. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Recordmecca's Jeff Gold.

An exquisite signed album boasting an atypically large signature—after a memorable showing at Newport Jazz Festival in 1955, Davis signed with Columbia and formed his 'first great quintet' with John Coltrane on saxophone. The contract included a $4,000 advance and a condition that his recordings for Columbia would remain unreleased until his agreement with Prestige expired. 'Round About Midnight was his first album for the label.
