can’t see the forest

So What?

I thought this was interesting…’So What’ is one of my favorite Miles Davis tunes, and YouTube offers this video of an early combo featuring Davis and Coltrane, from 1959. The performance is nice. It’s easy to see the contrast between Miles’ sparse and selective melodic style and Coltrane’s arabesque cascades of notes, a contrast which always seemed to work well without any interference.
