Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest jazz titles ever in their Prestige Mono Series on Hybrid Mono SACD.
These SACD jackets feature printed wraps mounted to chipboard shells, producing an authentic, "old school" look and feel: also referred to as "mini LP" jackets.
Cookin With the Miles Davis Quintet is the first classic album of four total that emerged from two marathon and fruitful sessions recorded in 1956 (the other three discs released in Cookins wake were Workin, Relaxin and Steamin). All the albums were recorded live in the studio, as Davis sought to capture, with Rudy Van Gelders expert engineering, the sense of a club show á la the Café Bohemia in New York, with his new quintet, featuring tenor saxophonist John Coltrane. In Miless own words, he says he called this album Cookin because thats what we didcame in and cooked. Whats particularly significant about this Davis album is his first recording of what became a classic tune for him: My Funny Valentine. Hot playing is also reserved for the uptempo number Tune Up, which revs with the zoom of both the leader and 'Trane.
Originally released in 1957
