Happy birthday, Miles Davis

Born 25 May 1926, died 28 September 1991. This is his second great quartet – with Wayne Shorter, sax; Herbie Hancock, piano; Ron Carter, bass; and Tony Williams, drums – in 1967 performing “Walkin’”. Williams was 22.

And here is something he prepared earlier: “So What” from Kind of Blue in 1959 with John Coltrane, sax; Wynton Kelly, piano; Paul Chambers (I think) and Jimmy Cobb, drums. All together: “Aaaaahhh.”
