    Regarding Bars 5 & 6-

    Here's an excerpt from Kind Of Blue: The Making Of The Miles Davis Masterpiece by Ashley Kahn...

    Pg. 142, Jimmy Heath recalls-
    "When people play it("All Blues") other than in the Miles Davis band, a lot of people play it where they go from the "G" chord to "C", a traditional Blues. But when we played "All Blues", Miles would always say don't go to the IV chord on the second part of that. He wanted to stay in a modal concept. So he'd go from G7 to a G minor sound, really playing that mode so that his improvisation sounded a little dissonant & a little more sophisticated".


    I also recall reading that Miles wanted a Gm & not a Gm7 for bars 5 & 6.

    Kahn mentiones that speeding "All Blues" up & add a Latin twist & a "Ray Charles' sound emerges. Play it 4/4 & one can almost hear 'The Twist'".
