4 stars When you mine four studio albums out of the same set of sessions, you'd expect to start scraping the bottom of the barrel by the time you got to the third or fourth one, but actually the Miles Davis Quintet are still going strong on Workin'. It isn't quite the eye-opener that Cookin' was, but it's still a brisk set of pleasant bop numbers that certainly doesn't embarrass any of the participants. The consistency of the four Quintet albums is even more impressive when you consider that they had been knocked off in one session as part of a contractural get-out clause with Prestige Records; whilst lesser artists would have simply "phoned it in", Miles Davis showed himself to be a true professional, crafting a tight Hard Bop album.
