2019 EU reissue on 180g vinyl LP- Cookin' was the first classic album to be released from the famed extended recording sessions of the Miles Davis Quintet (Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones) in 1956, wherein they taped the band's basic repertoire in the manner of nightclub sets rather than the repetition of the usual studio takes. The essential albums Relaxin', Workin' and Steamin' also resulted from these sessions. From the muted eloquence of "My Funny Valentine," to the finger-poppin' "Blues By Five," and 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. Davis was even quoted as saying he named the album Cookin’ because “that’s what we did, came in and cooked.”

Miles Davis’ quintet was formed in 1955 and is widely regarded as one of the greatest combos in jazz history. Each of its members was an individual creative force that could have easily been a leader. “Philly Joe and Red Garland were the same age”, explained Miles in his autobiography, “about three years older than I was. Coltrane and I were born in the same year, with me being a little older. Paul Chambers was the baby in the group, being only twenty, but he was playing like he had been around forever. And so was Red; he was giving me that Ahmad Jamal light touch, and a little bit of Erroll Garner, along with his own shit up in all of that. So everything was happening”. This quintet – like many other great bands composed of important figures – didn’t last long despite Miles’ best attempts to keep it together. Like its followers Steamin’, Workin’ and Relaxin’, Cookin’ is the product of two massively productive recording sessions during May and October of 1956. Miles’ 1953 quartet versions of both “Tune Up” and “When Lights Are Low” have been added here as a bonus.
