Miles Davis: My Funny Valentine
I’ve had this record for years, and rarely listen to it. Not sure why. It’s the Columbia reissue from 2013, I believe.
I really do love his music, though maybe because he’s always been there at the top, I take it for granted. Man, how could I do that?
The lineup is simply scary – Miles Davis, George Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. Recorded live in New York, February 1964. Six tunes.
I like the recording – clean, quiet, and dynamic. And, for a 50-year-old live recording, there’s a lot of bass! Very nice. My copy needs a good cleaning – the last one didn’t quite do it.
Anyhow, digging this tonight.
