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 Cookin’s wake were Workin’, Relaxin’ and Steamin’). All
the albums were recorded live in the studio, as Davis sought to capture, with
Rudy Van Gelder’s 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 Miles’s own words, he says he called this album Cookin’ because
“that’s what we did—came in and cooked.” What’s 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.
