Andy_Tanner Posted February 22, 2004 Share Posted February 22, 2004 i've been listenting to loads of Miles Davis recently, mainly stuff up to and including In A Silent Way. one i keep returning to is a double album package comprising Cookin' and Relaxin' (1956) the line up consists of Miles - Trumpet, Coltrane - Sax, Red Garland - Piano, Paul Chambers - Bass and Philly Joe Jones - Drums. a classic quintet. this is as chilled as Miles gets and it's all sumptous from the piano intro of My Funny Valentine onwards. fans of Kind of Blue may enjoy this earlier work's laid back and melodic approach. full of warmth and feeling, well worth investigating. two of four albums recorded during this period with the same quintet, if you like them check out the other two, Workin' and Steamin'. i think you can actually get a box set of all four these days, enjoy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
