Now's the Time: Miles Davis 1945-1989
In a thrilling moment of recognition, pianist Red Garland transcribes Davis' 1945 solo, beginning at 7:34, during a vigorous reading of Monk's "Straight No Chaser" (1958). Monk himself is present for an audacious solo on the first take of "The Man I Love" (1954). There are other connections among this all-too-brief selection of tunes. Miles' "Moon Dreams"-like solo on "When Lights Are Low" (1953) is credited, by trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg, as inspiring him to become a musician; Davis would later be the star soloist on Mikkelborg's Aura (Columbia, 1985), represented here by "Violet."
