Miles Davis "Volume 2" LPBlue Note
Regular price $ 21.99
The quality of playing is strong in every way. Miles and the boys play through those tricky triplets in "Ray's Idea" very cleanly. The two ballads, "Enigma" and "I Waited for You," again show Miles' marvelous tender side. "Kelo" and "CTA" are two great boppin' ensemble pieces, with great solos all around. The real capper of this set is Bud Powell's "Tempus Fugit," with again more great solos from Miles, saxist Horace Silver and t'bonist Jay Jay Johnson. The real kicker of this piece however is Art Blakey's infectious backbeat. Probably my most favorite piece of jazz drumwork.
