New Rhumba
Miles Davis Lyrics


Do you know what it means to walk alone?
And what it means to be, be by yourself?
Do you know what it means when there's no one to bring you good news?
Then you know, you know the meaning of the blues

Do you know what it means to cry alone?
And what it means to cry by yourself?
Do you know what it means to love a woman you can't own?
If you do, then you know the meaning of the blues
I've been weeping and weeping,
Moaning and moaning,
Crying and sighing all the day
I've been hiding my tears
Feel like dying
Wishing love would come to stay
And do you know what it means when the lord is taken away?
I cry, oh I cry
Oh I cry everyday

Yes I know what it means to walk alone
And how it feels to walk by myself
Yes I know what it means to love a woman you can?t own
Yes I do,
I know the meaning of the blues
Yes I know the meaning of the blues
Woo-hoo

The collaborations with Gil Evans gave Miles an amazing depth of creativity. Shout out to Ahmad Jamal.

Richard Bower

Whilst no-one disputes the mastery of Miles, the contribution of arranger Gil Evans to this iconic sound is often overlooked. The Gil Evans Orchestra was not "just" a big band. Gil introduced orchestral woodwind and a tuba into the ensemble. This gave him the opportunity to make different textures and tones, not heard before in jazz music. This is evident on this recording, but especially on the "Sketches of Spain" and "Porgy and Bess" albums of the late 1950's.

Has there ever been a more aptly titled album than, "Miles Ahead"?

He was.

For some of us this was the music of our youth. At the time we had no idea how lucky we were. Thanks.

Art Taylor played on the record but here it's Jimmy Cobb, who we lost yesterday. RIP Jimmy Cobb.
