2-CD SET

4-PANEL DIGIPACK

INCLUDES 16-PAGE BOOKLET

Miles Davis’ association with John Coltrane between 1955 and 1961 produced some of the most wonderful recordings in jazz history. This set compiles all of the quintet recordings made during two marathon studio sessions on May 11 and October 26, 1956. Those amazing dates produced the music released on the classic albums Cookin’ (Prestige PRLP 7094), Relaxin’ (Prestige PRLP 7129), Workin’ (Prestige PRLP 7166), and Steamin’ (Prestige PRLP 7200), which ended the trumpeter’s contract with Prestige Records.

One of the most renowned jazz photographers of all time, Francis Wolff (1907-1971) was also a record company executive and producer, whose skills were essential to the success of the Blue Note record label. Born Jakob Franz Wolff in Berlin, Germany, he soon became a jazz enthusiast, despite the government ban placed on this type of music after 1933. A Jew, in 1939 he left Berlin, where he had worked as a commercial photographer, and established himself in New York. He began working there with his childhood friend Alfred Lion, who had co-founded Blue Note Records with Max Margulis. The latter soon dropped out of any involvement in the company, and Wolff joined Lion in running it. Wolff took thousands of photographs during the label’s recording sessions and rehearsals. His highly personal visual concept would be forever associated with both Blue Note and jazz as a whole.
