Of Miles Davis’s many bands, none was more influential and popular than the quintet with John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. Davis’s muted ballads and medium-tempo standards endeared him to the public. The horns’ searing exposition 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. The flawless rhythm section became a model for bands everywhere.
Although there is no original material on Steamin, it may best represent the ability of the Miles Davis quintet to take standards and rebuild them to suit their qualifications. Steamin’ is a significant portion of the music of this remarkable group.
Originally released in 1961.
