BiRtHdAy WeEk continues with Miles

BiRtHdAy WeEk continues today with more great music.
I'm listening to MILES DAVIS IN PERSON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHTS AT THE BLACKHAWK -- one of my favorite jazz albums.
The 1961 recording features trumpeter Davis backed by four stellar musicians -- pianist WYNTON KELLY, bassist PAUL CHAMBERS, drummer JIMMY COBB and tenor saxophone player HANK MOBLEY.
The quintet play a jazz infused with blues and gospel -- not quite the experimentation usually associated with Davis, but uniformly excellent music nonetheless.
Songs such as "Neo" and "I Thought About You" include astounding solos and memorable melodies.
It's a fantastic album anytime. It just sounds better during BiRtHdAy WeEk.
