This is just so good.
I used to 'hate' Jazz. 

Stuff like this shows me I was so, so wrong. 
So I love Miles and this track, but it gets a lot of play and there’s so much more. How about The Man I Love (Take 1) from Miles and the Modern Jazz Giants, by way of one of many choices? Thx for considering Bill.
Grace Slick supposedly wrote WHITE RABBIT after dropping acid and listening to SKETCHES OF SPAIN for 24 hours. This man and his music were truly magic incarnate. 
OMG is all I have to say, always loved mikes going to give this a 10
My heart rate was like 40 bpm listening to that.

Blazz at it's best!
Beethoven of Jazz
Sublime. Makes working enjoyable listening to this. So cool its frozen solid 10 from me.
oooooh soooooooo coooool
This needs an '11' on the rating score ;) Sublimely wonderful!
How do I say: we need a separate, higher scale for music of this caliber? 
I'm with you, lizardking. {#Devil_pimp}

Often when I'm at work listening to RP and BillG spins an old Jazz cut, I think to myself "boy, if I was home with a neat scotch, I'd really enjoy this" and then I approach the skip button on my phone (i.e. my RP playing device which is rarely used as a telephone anymore....) and then I say 'screw it' and mentally put myself on my leather sofa in my office at home, sipping the single malt and imagining having been around when Jazz WAS pop music. 

Screw it again.... my 8 → 9

Long Live RP!!

 

Listen to this then go listen to this song by Davis 20 years later and you will understand what a journey this man took.

20.  Makes me consider if my other 10s are worthy. 
This song is very soothing and very relaxing indeed.{#Daisy}
Sublime.
On an aside oh how I loved going to the Towers Records near George Washington University and simply hanging out in their second floor jazz section for hours just grooving to alllll those beautiful sounds they'd play. What a treat and what an education reading the album jackets. Those were the days.

Increasing to 8 - Most Excellent  
A nice break from the banality of lyrics. More like this.

This is to me 7 - Quite Likeable


Sweetness and light.
It doesn't get any smoother or more intensely subtle.  Thank you for playing this.

Aimless noodling?  Oh now that's not nice!  Come over here boy'o, and let me staple an explanation to your forehead.  ;-)

So very nice...... so very nice..
perfect mood, and winding down music for this Friday night..
Thank you for the range and variety ...
So appreciate this selection  by Miles Davis ! 
Miles and Cannonball; just sizzling with inimitable energy, isn't it? Love the fat, saturated tube sounds and old-school mic placements...

We are blessed with a 'PSD' button. I was lucky enough to be given this tune when I pressed it. I suggest that next time you hear something you don't like, you press a single button, rather than typing your opinion...which you may be surprised to find, is not shared by every other soul listening to RP.

 
So you are allowed to present your opinion but he can't give his?

And again just now. I just can't stand the sound of trumpets though, no matter who plays them or how. Annoying as hell to my ears.
Bill? Can we have a Miles Day? Love the groove. 8

Well, Hackensack NJ.  Recorded in the living room of the engineer.

But yeah...

Would you say more of a Vanguard vibe, or Blue Note? 

 
Too cool daddy-o, in the engineer's living room? What a great time for jazz.

 

Dunno about which club vibe it has, question is beyond my ken. Which do you think Bobert?

And Cannonball Adderley rocks!
Quite definitely god-like.
oh so, so good! thanks for playin'!

Kudos RP. Obviously a 10, but how about doubling-down with some Clifford Brown/Max Roach? Miles' equal and contemporary, taken from us way too young. Thx!
Yeah good track.

OK Bill, play some Bruford's Earthworks!


it's all about noodling and re-noodling, and noodling some more and then noodling the noodle.{#Cowboy}
truly an innovative artist of the highest caliber

he made all his musicians play outside the box!

thank you Bill and Becky

No doubt. In a Silent Way is my all-time fave Miles album.

At first i thought this was poor.... then the jazz & trumpet blew me away i still dunno how - makes you feel warm inside, perfect ambient music. 7>8 possibly

this just hit the spot perfectly. thanks Bill.
Ahhhhh. PERFECT. So, so so nice. Love hearing the Miles anytime, but this track is just pure gold.

Wonderful piece - gotta love that bass! Would be great to hear more jazz overall on RP.  Perhaps 20% more?! {#Guitarist}

Mister Davis could blow the lights out.  And doesn't this just sashay down the street thanks to that steady bass line?

Thanks for playing it!

I agree. Not really a fan of jazz in general, however, though I like some.

I can name that artist in 2 notes.  Distinctive Miles.  Wonderful.
So very New York City.

This is still soooo good for the ears...
 
I don't get Jazz. I listened to this. I still don't get jazz. Boring to me.

"... there is jazz and there is jazz."  How very true.  If you want to like jazz, listen to more of it.  If you don't want to like jazz, I don't mind.

Within all genres of anything, there is variety.  For example, Rock and Roll:  Elvis (Presley or Costello), Scorpions, ZZ Top, U2, the Cure, Led Zeppelin, Green Day, Ramones .... and Whitesnake.  Note:  NOT a comprehensive list.

Hmmmm... there is jazz and there is jazz. Some drives me crazy (Rahsaan Roland Kirk, you know who you are), and some I am crazy for (Miles, Oscar, Stan, please take a bow), but when someone says that "they hate jazz" as a blanket statement, I tend to think that either they haven't listened to enough different people, or listened long enough to the people that they hate to 'get' it. I mean, ragtime, dixieland, big band, cool jazz, electric, Django and the Hot Five, Billie Holliday, Ella, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, Wayne Shorter, Diana Krall, surely there is something there for everyone.
And, to all those 'free jazz' buffs in general and fans of Kirk in particular, I admit it,if I listened to that genre enough I probably would come to appreciate it, at least a little bit.
 
First Fillmore concert I went to (the original at Fillmore and Geary—there was a bushel basket of apples at the entrance for anyone who was hungry) was the Paul Butterfield Blues Band (Bloomfield had just left the band, and we didn't know...nertz) and Rahsaan Roland Kirk, who just blew the cover off the place. I'm still not smart enough to get what he was doing, but what he was doing was mesmerizing. Kirk having taken care of the roof, Butterfield proceeded to blow the walls out.

BTW, Adderley kicks serious ass on this song.

This song requires a beautiful girl in a great night, for living a perfect love...    great song!
May be all the excuse I need to open up that new bottle of gin I got the other day. This is calling for a martini. 
Whiplash transition from the cool Ms. Rickie Lee Jones ... although a Miles tune is almost never inappropriate.
great and relaxing!
A shot of Miles makes any day a better day, Daddy-O!

Most of Miles makes want to "do it." (Hope this works :-)

Hey Miles.....back atcha babe!{#Devil_pimp}
I have the strangest urge to play Texas Hold'em

Timeless music that never ceases to amaze! daadaaaaaadadaaadaa~~~ :)
