“In a Silent Way”/”It’s About That Time”, de Miles Davis

O álbum de estúdio ‘In a Silent Way’ de Miles Davis foi gravado numa única sessão nos estúdios da CBS em 18 Fevereiro 1969. Do álbum homónimo lançado em Julho pela Columbia Records, o tema In a Silent Way, que preenche o lado B, foi escrito pelo teclista Joe Zawinul [1932-2007].

Dave Holland turns 75

In 1968, Miles Davis and Philly Joe Jones heard him at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, playing in a combo that opened for the Bill Evans Trio. Jones told Holland that Davis wanted him to join his band (replacing Ron Carter). Davis left the UK before Holland could contact him directly, and two weeks later Holland was given three days’ notice to fly to New York for an engagement at Count Basie’s nightclub. He arrived the night before, staying with Jack DeJohnette, a previous acquaintance. The following day Herbie Hancock took him to the club, and his two years with Davis began. Via.


Album: In a Silent Way (1969), recorded on February 18 and released on July 30 on Columbia Records.

‘Water Babies’, de Wayne Shorter

Lançado pela Blue Note no Verão de 1969, o álbum Super Nova conta com a colaboração de Miroslav Vitous, Jack DeJohnette, Chick Corea, e John McLaughlin, entre outros. O saxofone soprano de Wayne Shorter assume o papel principal no meu tema preferido ‘Water Babies’, gravado a 29 de Agosto.
