"... helped define the parameters of hard bop to come ... it's here that Davis mastered the bone dry tone he's best remembered for and Sonny Rollins matured into a true virtuoso."
- Wondering Sound

Recorded with the Modern Jazz Giants during the same 1954 sessions that yielded Walkin', these songs were initially released on 10-inch vinyl before this compilation came out in 1957. Even though vibraphonist Milt Jackson only appears on the title tracks, which he wrote, Miles Davis named the album after him (Bags was his nickname). Also appearing on those title songs is Thelonious Monk on piano, while Horace Silver plays piano on the other tunes with bandmates Sonny Rollins on tenor sax, Percy Heath on bass and drummer Kenny Clarke. The recording includes two takes of the Gershwin tune But Not For Me along with three jazz standards written by Rollins.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
