oh them album covers of that time 😄

I only have the Miles and Horns. The Side One with Rollins is very fine and has immortalized the blues "Down", which he also played live at BL. 

Side II I think is that stuff with Cohn and Zoot, composed by Cohn, well it´s nice and "tasty", but maybe a bit to much like tunes for an old "show orchestra". But beautiful solos.

Now playing:




Somehow "Peckin´ Time didn´t become a favourite. I had great expectations when I bought it in the States/FL in 1999, but I think it´s the drummer Charlie Persip, who is more a big band drummer I think. 
He also ruined the otherwise fantastic 1953 Mobley-Benny Green live set, where he plays a very old Gene Krupa styled drums with 4ths on the bass drum, so covering completly the bass lines......, it just goes "doof daff doof daff" all the time.

Coming back to this after many years (if not decades!) I'm struck by how far Miles is from the bop that preceded this and in which he was a participant. In fact, his drawn out, inflected utterances bring to mind figures of an earlier generation, such as Johnny Hodges or Ben Webster.
