Miles: The New Miles Davis Quintet (CD)
Before Miles could leave Prestige for Columbia he had to fulfill the remainder of his contract. This was accomplished by the two "marathon" sessions of May 11 and October 26, 1956 that gave birth to four separate LPs: Cookin'; Relaxin'; Workin'; and Steamin'. October 26, 1955 was the date of the first quintet recording for Columbia. Material from that session was mixed with two subsequent dates for the label (June 5 and September 10, 1956) to comprise 'Round About Midnight which Columbia released in 1957, after Davis's Prestige contract had officially expired. So, in essence, Miles announced the "New" quintet to the public at large. It got generally good reviews, particularly its leader, and the group's club performances were exciting listeners, and marking the beginning of the period in which Miles became a celebrity. He wore Italian suits and drove Italian cars. He also became known for turning his back on the audience. Some people really resented this; others, such as Down Beat's George Crater, made jokes-i. e. The Miles Davis Windup Doll. Miles once explained his move to me very simply: "Hank Mobley is taking a solo. I want the audience concentrating on him, so I walk off the stage. They don't need to be looking at me
