Ακούμε μερικές από τις πρώτες ηχογραφήσεις του Miles Davis, ως μέλους διάφορων σχημάτων του Charlie Parker, στο ξεκίνημα της εποχής του Bebop.
‘Donna Lee’ είναι η πρώτη σύνθεση του τρομπετίστα που ηχογραφήθηκε ποτέ σύμφωνα με τον ίδιο – το credit, όπως είχε αναφέρει, αποδόθηκε στον CP από λάθος της εταιρίας.
We hear some of the first
Miles Davis’ recordings, as a member of Charlie Parker’s various outfits, in the beginning of Bebop era.
‘Donna Lee’ is the trumpeter’s first composition ever recorded according to himself – the credit, as he’s stated, was given to CP by label’s mistake.

      Charlie Parker is the leader here. We’re at the early days of bebop, Miles is the “promising young man”, aged 19-21 on these recordings!
