Miles was a teenager playing in a high pressure situation. Of course he played a 'wrong note' or two. But mechanically playing 'all the right notes' is entirely secondary to making a committed and good performance.

Hiw many of us played with bird at this age?

John Mc

He played all the right notes just not necessarily in the right order.

@10m actually herbie learned many years later that miles don't play the bottom notes and herbie misheard him

He didn’t play any “wrong notes”. He played a 7th instead of a b7th. It sounds off but it’s jus outside, not wrong.

As the saying goes, There are no wrong notes in improvisation...just better choices.

To further clear up the argument(s) below. Dizzy mostly played in the upper register of the horn. Miles didn't want to copy Dizzy (he explains this in his autobiography), so he developed his voice by playing in the middle register of the horn, where he heard the music. It's been well documented that this is Miles on trumpet, and Dizzy, who also played enough piano to comp, played piano on this. Also, you can clearly hear that this trumpet player is blowing the solo with the middle register of the horn. Diz played more 16th notes in his solos than Miles, whereas Miles was more laid back with his solos. This is definitely a young Miles Davis on trumpet. Salt Peanuts, Night In Tunisia & Hot House are great examples of Dizzy's sound.

You can also hear the young miles botch a few notes on the head in and out lol
