Man. Paul Chambers is walkin to the moon.

Good 4/4 swing is never old. I heard this in the 8th grade. Didn't understand what was goin on. Just knew that it was Cool. Now I understand it, and it's still Cool.

So hip how the big band was standin around diggin' it.

2:45-3:11. The shapes that Coltrane was building. Wow. I like how Coltrane hangs notes over the harmony. Then Miles came back and killed it. Great post.

What impresses me the most about this is Miles the Master's willingness to leave a lot of space in his solos, to have breathing room in the phrasing, to hold notes out -- quarter notes, half notes, whole notes -- and to stay on the same pitch and play with it. He's so expressive. I'm less impressed by Trane's solo.
