Throughout a career spanning five-decades, MilesDewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) remained atthe forefront of jazz innovation. From the age of twelve Davis‘slove of music eclipsed everything else in his life, fueling both hisprofessional success and personal difficulties. Not long after a retreat fromNew York to battle his drug addiction, Davis returned strongerthan ever and “Walkin’” was recorded.
Considered by some critics to be the album thatcreated the hard bop genre, it was recorded in April 1954 in two sessions bytwo slightly different groups at Rudy Van Gelder’s home studio. The three tracks on side two recorded by thequintet feature the talented yet little known David Schildkraut onalto saxophone, the only musician to not receive a credit on the cover. Inthe second session the sextet comprises the same rhythm section along with J.J. Johnson on trombone and Lucky Thompson on tenorsaxophone.
“Walkin’” is a compilation brimming withspirit and marks a personal turning point for Davis as hedeveloped his sound with the Harmon mute placed close to the microphone, whichwould later become a signature sound for the rest of his career.
