What timeframe is this likely to be from? Any other speculation? -- or does anyone have an inside scoop to share?

The Lennie Tristano-Herbie Hancock connectionwell, I caught a lot of shit recently for positing that Lennie Tristano was a prime influence on Herbie Hancock. So I'm watching the Steve Allen Show clip of Miles doing Kind of Blue from 1964; some way through Herbie's solo, what does he do? A minute or so of pure Tristano derivatives (it occurs, on the clip I watched, at 7:39) based on a classic Lennie phrase device. Take that you yahoos, and never question the great Allini's musical judgment ever again. I forgive you, tempted as I am to smote you all (or I might say: Stryker 3, you're out) -
