The Skip 5 Show #2: Miles Davis – Woody’n You

From the 1958 album Relaxin’ With The Miles Davis Quintet, this is a jazz standard (written by Dizzy Gillespie in 1942, as an homage to Woody Herman). It’s a full-tilt hard bop swinger with great solo turns. Great? I mean, have a look… Personnel: Miles Davis (trumpet), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Red Garland (piano), Paul Chambers (bass), and Philly Joe Jones (drums). 

Get you some.

        Whatever works for you. Even once in a while keeps your foot in. You must like it but do it when it works for you. You have people who dig your takes.
        Yeah, this group is unbelievable. So many good players that make great music.

      The melting pot is always cooking! Pretty much constant tunes on this end, brother, and there is a boatload of Miles in the collection. Didn’t surprise me at all that this came up in the randomizer…
