Well to get a good taste for reblogging, I maybe better also reblog this one to add another good taste of music to my blog :-) Thx Gavin !


jazz is one of my fave music(s).
i like all kinds of jazz from modern to
jelly roll morton. I have a massive collection. piano jazz is my fave.
it’s probably blasphemous to say, but I’m very fond of Keith Jarrett.
i have most of his stuff, but not all (there is so much)

this concert is the bomb.

Miles Davis in cool Black and White


Miles Ahead session in Studio 61 in New York City. The show was broadcast on July 21, 1960.

The Miles Davis Quintet

  • 00:00 to 10:40 – So What (composed by Miles Davis from the album Kind Of Blue)

Miles Davis with the Gil Evans Orchestra

  • 10:41 tp 14:04 – The Duke (composed by Dave Brubeck from the album Miles Ahead)
  • 14:05 to 19:57 – Blues For Pablo (composed by Gil Evans from the album Miles Ahead)
  • 19:58 to 24:21 – New Rhumba (composed by Ahmad Jamal from the album Miles Ahead)

Look here for all session details. Of course it’s great (for me as a jazz lover) to see these jazz Master(s) at work. Besides Miles Davis himself we also see that other giant , John Coltrane. Personally i also enjoy to see Gil Evans, who had such an important influence on Miles Davis. But what makes this video also very interesting for me is its registration in b&w. Such cool light and shadows , great portraits from marvelous angles , fine focus. I see many wonderfully composed shots which are worthwhile to be studied with a photographic eye !
