At the Newport Jazz Festival in 1955, Davis performed the song ”Round Midnight’ as part of an all-star jam session, with the song’s composer Thelonious Monk, along with Connie Kay and Percy Heath of the Modern Jazz Quartet, Zoot Sims, and Gerry Mulligan. Davis’s solo received a positive reception from many jazz fans and critics. His response to this performance was typically laconic: ‘What are they talking about? I just played the way I always play.’ George Avakian of Columbia Records was in the audience, and his brother Aram persuaded him that he ought to sign Davis to the label.
