For Mel Futorian's second installment of Cymbalism—a column devoted to excerpts from a planned autobiography of Don Alias—she reveals the percussionist's reflections on working with trumpeter Miles Davis.

Alias has plenty to say on the recording of Davis' seminal Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1970), including how the late legend lifted the percussionist from Nina Simone's band, and how Alias unexpectedly found himself behind the drum kit for “Miles Runs The Voodoo Down."

Check out Don Alias and Miles Davis, today at AllAboutJazz.com!
