I have been listening to the 2nd Miles Quintet recently (Ron, Herbie, Wayne, Tony, Miles)...E.S.P., Nefertiti, Plugged Nickel, Miles Smiles, etc. I have listened to Ron's lines in these songs and really don't have a clue what's going on most of the time. Even some of the songs; on 'Plugged Nickel' they play the head of 'Stella', then the solos seem to be free format. I don't know, I'm just guessing. I'm trying to understand what was happening in that band. I listen to something like 'Orbits', and I look at the chart, I just don't hear how Ron's lines follow that chart. He always sounded a little strange to me harmonically anyways, he does stuff like use the 2 (9) as a chord tone...I dont know. If someone could shed some light on this I would greatly appreciate it. I'm hoping I can use this info to take my own playing to the next level.
