4. What did the trombone player do?

 

I don't recall a trombone player on the record. Are "alternate takes" available? Why didn't Cannon make the cut?

I liked it, though.

My favorite cuts from that Sextet were the one released on the B side of the "Frantic" soundtrack. Includes one of my favorite cuts of one of my favorite tunes, "On Green Dolphin Street." It wasn't modal, but that's OK.

5. Wonderful

 

That's just wonderful. Big Coltrane fan myself, but have always loved this music. How can you not like it, if you're anywhere in the vicinity of jazz?

Great dividend to actually see them playing. Yes, they are all great. And for me, Coltrane is playing there like some musical Buddha or something.

All great. Thanks.

6. I miss Miles Davis

When I was a little kid studying music in the 60s, I used to run to the record store to buy a Miles Davis or Bill Evans album I'd ordered. Miles Davis was a household name all over the civilized world. The 50s and 60s were a great time for music and I miss that level of excitement and appreciation. I loved it all, from Miles Davis to Jimi Hendrix, to The Seekers. You could see guys like Dizzy Gillespie on the Ed Sullivan Show and hear Stan Getz playing sax on AM radio such as on The Girl From Ipanema. Sadly, I don't know if the average person on the street today could name even one contemporary jazz musician. Miles Davis was beautiful and for me will never die. I love this new stamp marked "FOREVER" that came out last month, a joint French - U.S. Postal Service commemoration of two great international artists.

8. I played trumpet most of my life (laid off now) and Miles was "the man".

Miles knows how to poke great holes in the silence.
