For me Miles' 1956 albums rank among my favorites, and this one tops the list. My reasons are as much nostalgic as they are a matter of personal taste, so take any of my subjective comments with a grain of salt.

Three of the tracks trigger nostalgic responses in me: Four (which I will forever associate with Anita O'Day's 1958 rendition on Anita O'Day Sings The Winners), In Your Own Sweet Way, and Trane's Blues. I first heard all three of those songs during memorable events in my life. As personal as they are and the associations, the songs also stand on their own merits in my opinion. If you are unfamiliar with them listen to the sound samples above.

Another factor is the music that Miles was playing in 1956 strongly appeals to me. Every track on this album, plus the other three mentioned above have a certain mood - even an innocence combined with sophistication - that keeps me coming back to this particular album.

Finally, it's the line-up that also draws me to the album. For one thing, I love Red Garland's piano work. I own a few of his albums and play them often. This is also my favorite Coltrane period. As a drummer it's axiomatic that the rhythm section - Philly Joe Jones on drums and Paul Chambers on bass - is going to hold my attention. And, of course, where Miles was musically in 1956 cinches it (for me).

This and the other three 1956 albums are essentials in my personal music library. If you love Miles during this period you will probably enjoy this (and the other ones).

Love this CD. We were introduced to it at a friend's dinner party, and it's the perfect music for either quiet activities or background music. Beautiful and interesting without requiring a ton of concentration. Love it!

“A Stylish Artistic Portrait”
As the third great album in a series of four classic albums by the original Miles
Davis Quintet of the 1950’s, the highly praised masterwork by the celebrated jazz
trumpeter-bandleader and discoverer of talent finds him showcasing an evocative
urgency and passion within the modern jazz medium. First recorded in 1956 and
released in 1959, Workin’ With The Miles Davis Quintet present a crafty series of
original compositions and versions on classic jazz standards that made it a time-
honoured labour of love for this first class quintet. Starting off with an captivating
note with the standard classic It Never Entered My Mind whom he doesn’t bother
to put a mute on his trumpet (he made it a hit in 1954 for Blue Note Records with
the mute on), the track set feature consists of original compositions like Four and
The Theme, as well as on marvelous reinditions of several classic jazz standards
that includes Dave Brubeck’s In Your Own Sweet Way, Ahmad Jamal’s Ahmad’s
Blues and John Coltrane’s The Last Trane. With the excitement of the emerging
John Coltrane, the informed melodic swing of Red Garland, the true tremendous
snap and pop percussion of Philly Joe Jones, the rhythmic mellowtone basslines
of Paul Chambers and Miles’ poignancy and intense solos, Workin’ has plenty of
brilliant group participation and fresh vitality that makes this one a quintessential
listening experience that will remain as definitely timeless as ever.

Came late to Miles and his Jazz and I don't have a strong music background but I do like this as well as most of his work. For me music that allows me to concentrate while being entertained.
