Circle in the Round is an album by jazz musician Miles Davis. It collects outtakes from a variety of sessions.

Despite its lack of unity, Circle in the Round was an essential release in that, apart from 1950s recordings with Davis's quintet and sextet, it documented key moments in his career, until then unknown to the record-buying public. By arranging the tracks in chronological order the album shows Davis's progression in sound over the years.

"Circle in the Round" is the first studio recording in which he departed from the acoustic quintet, and therefore marks the inception of his "electric" period. The title track, recorded in 1967, was the earliest released recording of Miles that featured the sound of the electric guitar (played by Joe Beck), something that would become prominent in his music over the years. The slightly later "Teo's Bag", "Side Car" (two takes), "Splash" and "Sanctuary" all show him experimenting with various formations, all including at least one amplified instrument. "Guinnevere" is from the same "electric" sessions of early 1970, with sitar and tabla, which yielded "Great Expectations", "Orange Lady" and "Lonely Fire" (released on Big Fun).
