The Miles Davis Quintet - Relaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet mp3 album

Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet is an album recorded in 1956 by Miles Davis. Two sessions on 11 May 1956 and 26 October in the same year resulted in four albums-this one, Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet, Workin' with the Miles Davis Quintet and Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet. These four albums are considered to be among the best performances in the whole hard bop subgenre. The album was remastered by Rudy Van Gelder in 2005 for Prestige Records.

Relaxin' features the Miles Davis Quintet in a pair of legendary recording dates - from May and October of 1956 - which would generate enough music to produce four separate long-players: Cookin', Relaxin', Workin', and Steamin'. Each of these is considered not only to be among the pinnacle of Davis' work, but of the entire bop subgenre as well. As with the other titles, Relaxin' contains a variety of material which the band had concurrently been performing in their concert appearances

Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet. Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet is an album by Miles Davis, recorded in 1956 but not released until 1961 as PRLP 7200. 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, Workin' with The Miles Davis Quintet and Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet. Prestige – LP 7200: Miles Davis – trumpet.

Long before Miles Recorded "Time After Time" and Stanley Crouch excoriated him for having the vulgarity to praise Prince, Miles was recording his own versions of pop tunes. His first classic quintet played "Surry With the Fringe on Top," and "If I Were a Bell," and by doing so transformed them into jazz standards

The quintet spices things up with the closer, a dual piece that drastically changes dynamics and mood halfway through the song. The piece is perhaps the most interesting on the album, a notable track in its own right. Perhaps the only letdown the album contains is the ballad Blues by Five, which drags on a bit, failing to justify its near 10-minute run time. Even with the slight slip-up, Cookin’ is an incredibly solid hard bop outing, featuring memorable passages that do justice to the Miles Davis name.
