Recorded on May 11 and October 26, 1956, at Rudy Van Gelber Studio in Hackensack, New Jersey

These two sessions resulted in four albums : Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet, Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet, Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet and Workin' with the Miles Davis Quintet. These four albums are considered to be among the best hard bop performances.

The famed extended recording sessions of the Miles Davis Quintet, wherein they taped the band’s basic repertoire (and what a marvelous mixture of jazz originals and standards) in the manner of nightclub sets rather than the repetition of the usual studio takes. Cookin’ was the first to be released and it excited listeners not only with its contents but with its promise of more to come. Davis, Coltrane, Garland, Chambers, and Jones : one of the classic groups in the history of jazz. It established a level of excellence that was to foster a long, successive line of outstanding Davis quintets and sextets through the Fifties and Sixties.
