Miles Davis - Workin' With The Miles Davis Quintet
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Undeniably one of the best small bands in the history of jazz, the Miles Davis Quintet made history at the Cafe Bohemia on Manhattan's Barrow Street and in the New Jersey studio of Rudy Van Gelder for Prestige. Workin' With The Miles Davis Quintet is the third in a series of four LPs taped in two marathon studio sessions, done in the style of sets at the Bohemia and producing music of high energy and immediacy.
Preceded by Cookin' With The Miles Davis Quintet and Relaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet, Workin' With The Miles Davis Quintet is a mix of standards and originals, up-tempos and ballads, and a trio number, "Ahmad's Blues." The music this quintet made in the mid-Fifties period will live forever: the excitement of the emerging John Coltrane; the informed, melodic swing of Red Garland; the tremendous snap and pop of the rhythm trio of Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones; and Miles's poignancy and intense swing.
