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 it's contents but with it's promise of more to come. Davis, Coltrane, Garland, Chambers, and Philly Joe: 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. From the muted eloquence of My Funny Valentine, through the fingerpoppin' Blues by Five, to the urgent swing of Airegin and Tune-Up, Cookin' has the ability to thrill the listener no matter how many times it is played-the mark of an all-time great performance. With John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones. T If I Were a Bell, Stella By Starlight, Walkin', Milestones, No Blues
