    Where did you get you data for this? My brother who is also listed on the On the Corner cd and the Big Fun cd was with Miles at the Cellar door sessions and he is not mentioned. If it was the fender rhodes/ organ/ synethsizer, etc it was Harold Ivory Williams Jr for some of those sessions.

    Thanks for your response, Hope. I gathered my data from the standard Miles discographies (Jan Lohmann, Peter Losin and Enrico Merlin), as well as the liner notes of the re-issues.

    It's possible that your brother, bassist Harvey Mason, was in attendance during the Cellar Door recordings, but he is not listed on any of the discographies as playing on the date. And, it is clearly, to my ears, Michael Henderson playing electric bass.

    Harold Ivory Williams Jr. is absolutely not playing on the live Cellar Door dates. He is credited as playing on three tracks from June 1972 from the just released Complete On the Corner Sessions, which covers studio sessions from 1972-74.

    Thanks for responding. My brother is not Harvey Mason but Haorld Ivory Willams who is definitely on the On the Corner project.

    And ps:

    Harvey Mason is a drummer, mostly known from Herbie Hancock.

    :-)

    Well, his work with Herbie is a long time ago. More recently, he's been with smooth jazzers Fourplay...

    On the liner notes, the musicians are listed as:

    Miles, Gary Bartz, Keith Jarrett, Michael Henderson, Jack DeJohnette, Airto Moreira, and John McLaughlin on two discs.
