Miles Davis Lyrics

According to jazz "legend & lore", Miles, Wayne (who composed this tune), Herbie, Ron & Tony were rehearsing in the studio and almost 'by accident' realized that having Tony (and to a lesser extent, Herbie) solo while Miles, Wayne & Ron played the melody & rhythm was the only real way this particular tune could really be performed. [Also tried this idea on an early take of Pinocchio, not coincidentally also written by Wayne.] Oh, and by "solo" I mean that Tony would, in a way, "compose" his drum part around the melody that Wayne himself composed and that Miles & Wayne played together in unison.

Now knowing that, I tend to pay particular attention to Tony and Herbie, and it changes the listening experience a little for me. Thanks.

Teo Macero: how many times are you and Wayne going to repeat the head?
Miles: yes

I read somewhere that they had done a great take before this one (with some stellar soloing) only to discover that the tape hadn’t been rolling. They were all really bummed out ‘cause they had to re-do the song, and it kind of shows in the performance. Even so, it’s still perfect IMO!

Great-ness such control not to break away ......notes only needed are played.
