Miles in Berlin and "Frank Butz"


Recommended Posts

There's an All About Jazz article about the Miles in Berlin cd that tells a story about "Frank Butz"-- a saxophone player who only played on the first track and then was called from the stage by the police. The whole article reads in a bizarre way: http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=21078

Is there any truth to this? Does "Frank Butz" exist? Does he appear on any of the tracks? The only reference I can find through Googling to Frank Butz is in this article... if it is true-- what happened to Frank?

Got me sweating for a hot minute until I saw the AAJ posting date !


Personnel: Miles Davis: trumpet; Wayne Shorter: tenor saxophone; Herbie Hancock: piano; Ron Carter: bass; Tony Williams: drums, Frank Butz: alto saxophone.

Has a certain ring to it..
