video: bebop compulsion


“Compulsion” – Davis – New York, 30.1.1953 –
Miles Davis Sextet:
Miles Davis: Trumpet
Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins: Tenor sax
Walter Bishop: Piano
Percy Heath: Bass
“Philly” Joe Jones: Drums

Bird on tenor! A young Philly Joe! Bird and Rollins sound much alike. Big surprise. Charlie Parker takes the first tenor solo, Rollins is next, in this rare recording.
