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


Of Miles Davis’ many bands, none was more influential and popular than the quintet with John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. Davis’ muted ballads and medium-tempo standards endeared him to the public and the horns’ searing exposition here of classics like “Salt Peanuts” and “Well, You Needn’t” captivated musicians. The searching, restless improvisations of Coltrane intrigued listeners who had a taste for adventure while the flawless rhythm section became a model for bands everywhere. The 1956 recorded Steamin’ is undoubtedly a significant portion of the music of this remarkable group.
