Thanks for the recommendations. Not my area of knowledge, I now have some good options to listen to.

We need a blues thread next. (make it a separate one).

A little smooth for my taste, but that's a sweet long solo by Max Roach. Thanks to RS for posting this.

Not true. I don't know if apocryphal or not, but Miles reportedly once said of Bill Evans that Evans was the only white guy he ever knew that wasn't racist. :lol:

Here's a trumpeter that payed with balls. Lee Morgan. Shot dead while playing on stage, too. The original Dimebag Darrell.

Every interview, video or written, that I've seen or read was oozing with arrogance and snide remarks about his peers. Much of which was made tongue and cheek, but you can't deny Miles wasn't an arrogant SOB. He like to put on that persona.

My comment might have been a bit hyperbolic, though.

I can't seem to get the embed to work.

No, I'm quite sure that Miles was as big a dick as James Brown. And Brown was a major asshole.

I read Miles autobiog and he was quite a dick even by his own admission. BTW grew up with some money as his dad was a well off dentist.

In his book he did say a lot of nice things about the arranger Gil Evans and did not consider him a racist.

Sketches of Spain is a great "fake jazz" album. Fake jazz meaning arranged but with jazz idioms. Like of like Henry Mancini. Nothing wrong with fake jazz tho. Steely Dan is essentially fake jazz and Donald Fagen admitted this.
