Surprised, I think, by the softness of Wayne's intro, the rhythm section's quick "drop down" gave me chills. Brilliant. Wish there was more to this clip.

Miles, so good when "cool," when "inside," was better still at this edge of his game. Funny that he has a reputation of never "blowing" and staying out of the upper register. His entire solo swung there!

I saw Miles live once at a club in LA, and some guy yelled out from the audience, "Aw Miles, come on a blow." He turned around, after having finished the whole piece, and said twice in his gravelly voice, "Who said that?" Then, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter starting questioning Miles as to what happened. Then they just laughed and went on to the next tune. It wasn't long after that Miles came to sit on the stage right next to me, literally inches. I had to hold my crossed leg back to keep from kicking him. :-)

Thanks for this, Sean. You are most generous with your time, attention and effort.

Awesome. Muscular, yet so much more. Like Ron's slightly aloof, jokey work (which doesn't impede in the least the two roaring lions).

Were I living closer, I'd be there in a heartbeat! Went to prep school with the playwright (fun fact: he was "Kip" then!) and love his work without reservation; but never seen this one performed.

Love those who dare to solo before stating the theme, moving from outside to inside, the out again.

Love the quote from "I Want You (She's So Heavy)." Extraordinary chops, even higher standard of musicianship.
