The deluxe vinyl box set edition of the Miles Davis Quintet’s Legendary Prestige Quintet Sessions is out today:
Celebrating the 70th anniversary of Prestige Records, the six-LP set presents the quintet’s 1955–’56 sessions for the iconic jazz label, which resulted in classic albums such as Cookin’, Relaxin’, Workin’ and Steamin’. Plus, the box set offers a bonus LP with audio from radio and TV appearances by the group.
The lacquers were cut by Clint Holley at Well Made Music from hi-res 24-bit/192kHz digital transfers of the original analog tapes and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI. The discs are housed in a linen-wrapped portfolio-style book, featuring stunning photographs of Davis and the band, plus in-depth liner notes from esteemed jazz historian Bob Blumenthal.
