Recorded by MILES DAVIS on COLLECTORS' ITEMS
Fantasy (Prestige): OJCCD-071-2 / Recorded January 30, 1953
On this birth of the hard-bop session, trumpet
legend MILES DAVIS is joined by two of the greatest saxophonists to ever hold the horn. In listening to this recording, students will be inspired by the classic solos (over rhythm changes) as well as by this great head and arrangement.
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Tenor Sax 1, Alto Sax
3rd part: Tenor Sax 2, Baritone Sax, Trombone
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This is a challenging head over rhythm changes. The A section has lots of great bebop vocabulary and rhythmic interest throughout. The bridge uses different harmonies from those usually found in rhythm changes.
SOLOS: The solos are over medium-uptempo rhythm changes with a different bridge.
MILES DAVIS (1926-1991) Trumpeter, composer, talent scout, Miles Davis was one of the most influential musicians in the history of Jazz. Starting as a bebop trumpeter, he was instrumental in the development of several later styles, including "cool" "hard bop" and "fusion." He first played with Charlie Parker in the forties, but spent the remainder of his career as a leader. Among his most well-known groups are his "Birth of the Cool" nonets and other large-ensemble collaborations with the arranger Gil Evans such as the albums "Porgy and Bess" and "Sketches of Spain." He is also known for his many recordings leading two distinct and classic quintets: in the Fifties with John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones and in the Sixties with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. The list of his sidemen is a "who's who" of modern Jazz and his influence on other musicians and musical styles remains strong to this day.
