Workin' with the Miles Davis Quintet is a studio album by the Miles Davis quintet recorded in 1956 and released circa January 1960. Two sessions on May 11, 1956 and October 26 in the same year resulted in four albums-this one, Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet, Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet and Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet. Track 2 is a composition written for Davis by Eddie Vinson see Blue Haze for more details. Trane's Blues also known as Vierd Blues, a tongue-in-cheek. Though recorded quickly over just two sessions, the resulting albums Cookin, Relaxin, Workin and Steamin With The Miles Davis Quintet remain key post-bop albums and a fascinating look at Miles earliest recordings with his first great quintet. To meet Weinstocks demands and hasten his departure, Davis took his group which had debuted for Prestige with the album Miles: The New Miles Davis Quintet, released in April 1956 into Rudy Van Gelders Hackensack studio, in New Jersey, for two long sessions on 11 May and 26 October of that year.

The band's interaction on Four extends the assertion that suggests this quintet plays with the consistency of a single, albeit ten-armed, musician. One needs listen no further than the stream of solos from Davis, Coltrane, Garland, and Jones, with Paul Chambers chasing along with his rhythmic metronome. Beneath the smoldering bop of Trane's Blues are some challenging chord progressions that are tossed from musician to musician with deceptive ease. Miles Davis. UMPI и другие авторские общества 8. Trumpeter Miles Davis led several sessions for Prestige Records between November 1955 and October 1956 with his legendary first quintet, featuring tenor saxophonist John Coltrane, pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones. The sessions represent an incomparable musical legacy. Workin' presents an easygoing program that balances ballads with the blues and includes quintet performances of originals by Davis Four, Half Nelson, Coltrane Trane's Blues, and Dave Brubeck In Your Own Sweet Way an interpretation of the standard It Never Entered My Mind without saxophone and a piano-trio.

Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet is an album recorded in 1956 by the Miles Davis Quintet in Rudy Van Gelder's studio in Hackensack, New Jersey, and released in July 1957. As the musicians had to pay for the studio time a result of a rather modest contract with Prestige, their recordings are practically live. Two sessions 11 May 1956 and 26 October in the same year resulted in four albums-this one, Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet. The quintet included Miles, John Coltrane, Red Garland piano, Paul Chambers bass and Philly Joe Jones drums. Miles later expanded the core of the quintet to a sextet to record Kind of Blue, another, better-known masterpiece. In fact, the rhythm section of Jones, Chambers and Garland sounds much more dynamic here than the one with Bill Evans and Jimmy Cobb on Kind of Blue. Workin' also shows a more personal side of all of the musicians involved. Miles especially is in rare form, letting his full emotion show throughout the record.

Discussions of the Miles Davis Quintet - Workin' With The Miles Davis Quintet Album

I seem to be the only one to encounter problems. I received a copy that was awful. It constantly skipped throughout the whole record. I contacted Newbury and received a replacement, but the replacement had the same problem! I honestly wouldn't be able to recommend this one.

Anyone else encounter this problem with this pressing?
greed style
Mine doesn't sound great, a lot of distortion and sibilance throughout - especially inner grooves.
Excellent price / value. Spectacular interferences of front and back side in transparent vinyl.
