Our second Miles Davis segment begins with legendary saxophonist Jackie McLean and Kind of Blue drummer Jimmy Cobb talking about the sound Miles was after with his 1959 sextet at the first Kind of Blue recording session on March 2, 1959. Herbie Hancock also adds his thoughts on Miles’ priority for the session to capture the moment - not to do multiple takes of the same piece to create something mistake-free.
Music heard in all the Miles Davis episodes comes from the new 50th Anniversary Legacy Edition of Kind of Blue - winner of “Best Album Notes” at this past weekend’s Grammy© Awards! So please join us in congratulating the author, Francis Davis, for his achievement.
