    I love the hard bebop of the early 60’s to 70 with Miles. That quintet was steaming. Did not care about the nu jazz.
    I saw Miles a few times years ago where every tune he played was just magic. You would sat there and be so out of it under his spell of of unbelievable sound. What a sight to see and hear.
