The great jazz trumpeter/composer Miles Davis(1926-91) was struggling during the early 1950s and this album made for PRESTIGE was something of a comeback for him.
Tracks 1-2 were recorded in New York City on April 29, 1954 with Miles(trumpet); J. J. Johnson(trombone); Lucky Thompson(tenor sax); Horace Silver(piano); Percy Heath(bass) & Kenny Clarke(drums).
The lengthy blues 'Walkin'' and Dizzy Gillespie's 'Blue 'n' Boogie' contains fine solos from Miles, J. J. Johnson, Lucky Thompson & Horace Silver.
Tracks 3-5 were recorded in New York City on April 3, 1954 with Miles on muted trumpet, Dave Schilkraut(alto sax) and the above rhythm section.
All in all, this overlooked CD is an excellent introduction to Miles' early music.

5.0 out of 5 stars MIles Davis in Fine Mellow Mode 20 Mar. 2010
By Mike Borger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a Miles Davis connoisseur, I have collected many, many of this great musician's recorded work through the years. I caught on to Miles Davis in the mid Sixties when he was moving out of the hard bop style and moving into his inauguration of the jazz fusion movement with albums like "In a Silent Way," "Bitches Brew," "Live at Filmore East," and many others. Miles Davis has always had an incredible range, from whimsical light jazz to light bop to hard bop to the electric and post-electric era in his music.

Because I became aware of Miles Davis at that particular moment in history I was not familiar with a lot of his earlier music. The series of albums on the Prestige label - including "Walkin'" - features Davis in a recording live format that is quite interesting. That is, rather than creating music from scratch specifically for the recording session, Davis recorded here with his working bands at the time. This is a unique opportunity to hear what Miles Davis and his bands of the time sounded like live.

I find in this music with its overall sound and mood to be refreshingly cheerful and pleasant. That in no way detracts from the technical prowess that permeates the music of Miles Davis, the music of "Walkin'" included. There is a whimsical feel here, a sense of the ebullience of the time that these musicians spent playing together. The music that came later in the career of Miles Davis was perhaps more thought out and deliberate, more intentional. This music just flows freely and it is a great joy.

You will really enjoy the pure joy and light nature of this music. If you love Miles Davis, you will love this music. It is truly an enjoyable experience to hear this pleasurable music and connect it with the great music that followed with Miles Davis and his subsequent bands. If you are just interested in some pleasing light jazz music, you will be equally satisfied. You won't be disappointed in "Walkin'."

5.0 out of 5 stars Walkin' and listenin' 6 Aug. 2012

Listen to this album once, listen to it again and again. The listener is treated to a new experience with each time it is spun on the cd player and enjoyed on an mp3 player. It is cool and doesn't overpower the listener with overly "syrupy" notes that are more like pop than jazz. The cover information tells the history but the listener will appreciate the fine chemistry on this recording. Go for it.

One of Miles' best recording from the bebop era in my opinion. Like "Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet", I purchased this to replace an original vinyl that was not properly taken care of back in the day. So thankful the CD was made available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miles - what is there else to say 22 Dec. 2012

Mr Davis is the King, not the orginal crew, but he knew what he was doing over so many different styles of our best music that NO ONE has the claim to that title. Original, Inventive, Pure
