"Workin’ with the Miles Davis Quintet (Prestige LP7166) showcases the Miles Davis Quintet with John Coltrane & Red Garland in top form. Upon his unexpected success at the 1955 Newport Jazz Festival, Miles received a tempting offer to join the major label Columbia Records. In order to move to that label, he had to fulfill his previous contract with Prestige producing a couple of marathon sessions that resulted various LPs. Among the best of them is"Workin’" with the Miles Davis Quintet. Also included here in its entirety is the quartet album "The Musings of Miles" (Prestige LP7007). It was recorded the previous year with Garland again on piano.
