THE MILES DAVIS ALL-STARS: WALKIN' comprises tracks from two different sessions recorded in 1954. Davis was in a transitional period during this time, integrating the innovations from his BIRTH OF THE COOL period with the genre-defining, forward-thinking post-bop he would perfect a couple of years later with his first great quintet.

Yet Miles's transitional albums are usually more polished, developed, and engaging than a lot of other artists' definitive albums, and such is the case with WALKIN'. Whether on originals ("Solar") or standards ("Love Me or Leave Me"), the sessions boast impeccable playing and superb interplay between the musicians, who number among the best of the era. Pianist Horace Silver, drummer Kenny Clarke, and trombonist J.J. Johnson are among the personnel, and one can hear the beginnings of the synergy Miles was searching for and would find with his quintet (especially in the dynamics between his trumpet and Lucky Thompson's sax, which foreshadows his chemistry with John Coltrane).
