The Miles Davis Quintet: Freedom Jazz Dance and Gingerbread Boy [1966]

from the legendary Miles Smiles

You know it's a good album when arguably your favorite two songs are the last two songs. I've read that Miles Smiles was recorded in one take, and it shows -- in a good way.

I only recently realized that the Eddie Harris who wrote F.J.D. is the same Eddie Harris who did this. Ace!

(Gingerbread Boy written by Jimmy Heath)

Good post. I found little information on the biographies of Miles Davis. Maybe someone will be interesting.
