Walkin’  is a Miles Davis compilation album released in 1957 by Prestige Records. The album compiles material previously released on two 10 inch LPs in 1954, along with one previously unreleased tune. Here credited to the “Miles Davis All-Stars”, the songs were recorded on 3 April and 29 April 1954 by two slightly different groups led by Davis. Both sessions were recorded at Rudy Van Gelder’s home studio.
