Originally released in 1960, Workin'... is the third of four albums (which include Cookin'...Relaxin'..., and Steamin'...) by The Miles Davis Quintet, all recorded during the same 1956 sessions, and released in the following subsequent years. 

This first first legendary incarnation of the Miles Davis Quintet, active between 1955 and 1958, included John Coltrane (tenor saxophone), Red Garland (piano), Paul Chambers (double bass), "Phily" Joe Jones (drums), and Miles Davis (trumpet). Often referred to as the first of two "Great Quintets" (the second being the group active in the late-sixties that included Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter), the band had just recorded the landmark 'Round About Midnight when they embarked on the sessions which resulted in their following four albums, each one effortlessly cool and remarkably spontaneous. 

"This is the sort of thing that is going to be owned and played and dug and redug for all time. Few bands in the history of jazz have had the quality of this group. The whole LP is a gas. I don't see how anyone can do without it" - Ralph J. Gleason, DownBeat, 1960
