Format: MP3 Music
Coming back to New York City after successfully battling his personal demons,
Miles Davis had scored another high mark achievement with an incredible rhythm
section in 1954 that announce where his music and jazz in general were heading.
As one of the first great hard bop albums ever to make there mark, Walkin’ show-
cases Miles at the helm brilliantly heading a dynamic rhythm section that consists
of acclaimed pianist-composer Horace Silver, Percy Heath and even the dynamic
drums of Kenny Clarke, while J.J. Johnson and Lucky Thompson sat in the band.
Beginning with an artistic blast on the title track (which was composed by Richard
Carpenter, the jazz composer who later became half of the popular easy listening
singing duo The Carpenters during the 1970’s and early-1980s), the high voltage
track set concludes well with stunning force on two compositions written by Miles:
the 12-bar blues classic Blue ‘N’ Boogie and Solar, while a couple pop standards:
You Don’t Know What Love Is and Love Me Or Leave Me, are performed in such
equal form. However, what is even more influential about Walkin’ is the way how
the sextet solos of J.J. and Lucky have took advantage of the long-playing record
technology with two extended jam performances which focused on the blues and
the already arrived funky audio attack of hard bop, as the timeless music created
one of the most celebrated and early essential albums ever to come directly from
the Miles Davis canon, where this landmark achievement will always remain just
as highly supercharged and uplifting as ever.
