The Carole King album is lovely. Nice, sunny voice. How does the Miles Davis album compare to his best work, in your opinion?

Depends very much on what you think _is_ Miles Davis's best work, as people seem to disagree on that a lot.

As I personally like his records from 1963-68 a lot, this 1964 live album from immediately after they recorded "Seven Steps to Heaven" is, as far as I'm concerned, brilliant and contains some of his very best work. This and its companion live album "My Funny Valentine" (recorded at the same concert) are vital if you like Miles Davis, and the new remaster makes the sound really shine.
