AVID Jazz continues with its Four Classic Albums series with a re-mastered 2CD release from The Miles Davis Quintet complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details
“Cookin”, “Relaxin”: “Workin” and “Steamin”
Over the years we at AVID have been developing a catalogue of classic jazz albums, while also giving some space to some lesser known names and perhaps forgotten jazzmen and jazzwomen who made their own significant mark on the jazz world. These days it’s a pretty large and diverse catalogue which deserves to be checked out by all jazz fans. Many featured albums are now hard to find or ridiculously expensive. Because it was important to us to feature some of the lesser names in jazz we have inevitably left some significant gaps in the catalogue along the way, which we are now setting about rectifying. Our next release certainly falls into that category!
A true classic jazz quartet comes to AVID Jazz only this time the quartet is a Quintet! The Miles Davis Quintet present four classic albums “Cookin”; “Relaxin”; “’Workin” & “Steamin”. Universally recognised as one of the greatest jazz quintets ever recorded (until Miles created the 2nd great jazz quintet in the 1960s!), Miles Davis was at the top of his game when, in October 1956, he bought together four of the greatest musicians of the day (including one who would go on to become a jazz legend) to record a bunch of tunes that would make up the four classic albums we are honouring with this fine release. Alongside Miles Davis, was John Coltrane on tenor sax, Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and “Philly” Joe Jones on drums. The music these guys made that day, created jazz history, but rather than ramble on about it, we’ll let the music speak for itself.
