Upon his unexpected success at the 1955 Newport Jazz Festival, Miles Davis (who had recently overcome his drug addiction) found himself again in the limelight. He received a tempting offer to join the major label Columbia Records. In order to move to that label, Miles had to fulfill his previous contract with Prestige. For that reason he entered the studios with his Quintet to cut a couple of marathon sessions that produced a wealth of material which was subsequently issued on a number of classic albums.

Among the best of them is "Workin’" with the Miles Davis Quintet. The LP received a five-star rating in Down Beat, with Ralph J. Gleason writing that, “This is the sort of thing that is going to be owned and played and dug and redug for all time. Few bands in the history of jazz have had the quality of this group. The whole LP is a gas. I don’t see how anyone can do without it.” Workin’ also received five stars in All Music Guide.
