Since Hans brought up Miles Davis today, I started thinking about his brilliant album, “Birth of the Cool”, which wikipedia tells us, Birth of the Cool is a compilation album by American jazz musician Miles Davis, released in 1957 on Capitol Records.”  Since Hans will be covering vital info on this album in the very near future, I will simply say the selection here is called, “Moon Dreams” and was written by Chummy MacGregor and Johnny Mercer and was performed by Miles and the Nonet (9 total musicians).

      The person who told me about him said, “when you listen to Miles, listen to how he plays the empty spaces.”

        That is a cool way of putting it. I’ve listened to Bitches Brew…it’s really good.

      1. Yes! If you like Miles, there are movies about his life. A documentary and a regular movie.

          I very much like his music. I’d like to learn more about “the nonet” he was in. I will see if the library or netflix has them 🙂

          1. It is definitely on Netflix. Don Cheadle played Miles. I loved his, as I call it, “2 o’ clock in the morning music”. It’s very sexy 🙂

              ooh, never heard that term before. sounds like a great theme for a poem 😉 Don Cheadle is one actor I just don’t care for, maybe I’ll look for the documentary…

              1. What a great idea! I say it because in old movies there was a always a scene in a nightclub where someone was playing the trumpet softly at 2 in the morning and only one couple was still there, dancing slow. That’s what Miles Davis sounds like.
                Yes, I felt the same about Don Cheadle, but he did a good Miles. The documentary was excellent 👍
