blue haze


If you understood everything I said, you’d be me. 

Miles Davis (26 may 1926 - 1991) jazz musician, bandleader, composer

it may still be may, but with the outside thermometer hitting 90 yesterday and more of the same for the next few days it certainly feels like the hazy days of summer are here!

nothing like listening to some cool jazz to help one chill out!  last night we did that very thing  - we caught the jazz combo cuda at the barking spider .  without a doubt,  the spider is one of the best places to chill in cleveland and catch live music seven days a week!

have a sweet memorial day weekend! 


blue haze from miles album of the same name, the song was recorded on march 15, 1954.

the album was released in 1956. joining miles on this song is horace silver (piano), percy heath (bass), and art blakey (drums) - several other musicians (including charles mingus) join miles on other tracks of the album blue haze.
