As Joshua's post points, 'Maiden Voyage' features Miles Davis' early sixties group, with Freddie Hubbard on trumpet in lieu of Miles. If you want to hear that Miles Davis group on CD, I'd highly recommend, 'The Best of Seven Steps: The Complete Columbia Recordings 1963-1964'. It's a single disc with highlights from the seven disc 'Seven Steps: The Complete Columbia Recordings 1963-1964'. Saxophonist George Coleman is on the first five tunes (The title track, which smokes, as well as "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Autumn Leaves", "Stella By Starlight" and "All Blues"). Saxophonist Sam Rivers is on one tune ("If I Were A Bell") and Wayne Shorter is on one tune ("Walkin'"). Drummer Frank Butler and Pianist Victor Feldman also appear on some tracks. This is considered a transitional period for Miles between his first classic quintet w/ Coltrane and his second great quintet (in place on the CD's last tune with Miles, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Tony Williams and Wayne Shorter).
