"It's delightful ... the sound is at once relaxed and pressurized and oh so perfect for ballads ..."
- Wondering Sound

"There may have been more famous Miles Davis records released over the years, but Miles stands with the best of them. Not only for its significance, but because the music is simply top notch."
- Blogcritics.org

This album was the first to be released showcasing Miles Davis and his new quintet (John Coltrane on tenor sax, Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums). However it was not the first that Davis recorded with this quintet: before Davis could leave Prestige for his new record label, Columbia, he had to fulfill the remainder of his contract. This was accomplished by two "marathon" sessions in May and October, 1956 that gave birth to four separate albums: Cookin', Relaxin', Workin' and Steamin'. Davis actually recorded his first sessions for Columbia months earlier, in the fall of 1955, with his new quintet. The group's club performances were exciting, marking the beginning of the period in which Davis became a celebrity, wearing Italian suits and driving Italian cars. He also became known for turning his back to the audience. Davis once explained this move very simply: "Hank Mobley is taking a solo. I want the audience concentrating on him, so I walk off the stage. They don't need to be looking at me."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
