You should definitely look into Clifford.



Booker little is one of my favorite players right now. Probably the most complex player of his day and in many ways the Eric Dolphy of the trumpet. A great composer also. His last 2 solo albums are great.

I have a Booker Little recording from Live at the Five Spot. I think he plays with Eric Dolphy, a favorite of mine.

I like Dolphy, Mingus, Davis, Coltrane, Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner, and Monk a bit more than others.

Motherfuckers, this thread is about Miles. If you want to post about some other sad ass no playing musicians, start your own goddamned thread. No more of that shit.

Good list.

That is a very good recording. Very interesting that Coltrane considered Dolphy his musical equal, yet Booker Little plays up to Dolphy's level in all their recording at age 23. Would have been interesting to see his development, but for some reason trumpet players die early.

It never entered my mind is on Workin' with the Miles Davis Quintet. The rest of that series (Relaxin', Cookin', and Steamin') are all excellent, despite (or perhaps due to) being recorded over a combined 2 days (to close out his Prestige contract). Pls listen to them. Also they were recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's studio so...

First, you hear how much bop trumpet Miles could play (he's much more of a virtuoso than on the sides with Bird; his solo breaks on "Good Bait" rival in their intensity anything Fats Navarro played with Dameron). Second, you hear Miles' voice as a young man introducing the tunes - very sweet and modest and unlike the famous croak of his later years.
get it here.

Thanks! I see that there's also a CD reissues although there seems to be a dispute because some of the CDs were apparently mastered from MP3s.

...the piano sucks? Just kiddin-audiophile joke as Rudy sucked on piano miking.

Smeagol is right here; these albums are all excellent. The best LP box I got last year was the Prestige albums from Miles from Acoustic Sounds. Pressed in Germany, they sound superb.

I love the little asides from Miles - I don't know if they were on the originals and perhaps I have reissues. Things like "when the red light is on, that means you be quiet."

I heard saxophonist Bill Evans from Miles' 80's band tell a story: Evans was on stage smirking and nodding his head the music while waiting to solo, and Miles shuffles over to him and says "Whatever it is you were thinking, don't play it" and saunters away.
