Miles Davis Quintet – Relaxin’ With the Miles Davis Quintet (Blue Vinyl LP by Craft)


The second release to be issued in the classic series of Miles Davis Quintet LPs from the mid-1950s, Relaxin’ is yet another helping of the quintessential group’s output from one of their marathon 1956 recording sessions with Rudy Van Gelder. Relaxin’ demonstrates Miles’s mastery with a mute (he only plays open on Dizzy Gillespie’s “Woody’n You”); the emerging talent of the young John Coltrane; and the subtlety and strength of the rhythm section, headed by pianist Red Garland and rounded out by bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones. “That was some great music we made at both those sessions and I’m really proud of it,” Miles reminisced.
