Miles Davis on A & E

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Roark Haver, Feb 3, 2003.


  1. Did anyone watch the show on Miles Davis last night on A & E?

    I found the information on the Gil Evans "sound" very interesting. It brought into focus what it was about Miles' sound that I've always liked from the late 50's-60's.

    Thoughts?

    I saw it last night. It was great. Of course the Marcus stuff was fascinating. I always wondered about that two bar phrase that everyone applauded. Fascinating.

    I went to Gil Evans' funeral and sat next to John Scofield, btw.

    I watched it with my girlfriend.
    "Who is that?"
    "Marcus!!!"

    ...
    "Who is that?"
    "Dave Holland"

    ...
    "And what band was he in?"
    "The Mahavishnu Orchestra"

  3. How about those "kids" Tony Williams, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Wayne Shorter! What a band!
