Miles Davis on Freddie Freeloader

I'm still in Miles mode after the gig last Thursday…His music is so fun and his vibe is so distinct. Miles was definitely one of the mostif the not the mostinfluential jazz artists of all time. Today I transcribed one of my favorite solos of his, Freddie Freeloader (click to see transcription). This is the second track off of Kind of Blue, which happens to be the all-time best-selling jazz record. Some of the most swingin stuff ever.
