Miles Ahead

Coincidentally, the same day I posted Joe Henderson’s “Our Thing” I was asked to learn Joe’s arrangement of “Miles Ahead” for a gig.  This version can be found on the Verve album So Near, So Far.  Each of Joe’s albums for Verve featured the work of one composer, in this case Miles Davis.  Here’s the chart I wrote for the band:



Joe’s quartet is squared by John Scofield, Dave Holland and Al Foster.  A decade later this same rhythm section collaborated with Joe Lovano as ScoLoHoFo (about whom more next week).
