SATURDAY JAZZ BRUNCH: I Fall in Love Too Easily by Miles Davis - The time between ‘62 and '63 were years of transition for Miles. Coltrane had left the year before, then his rhythm section of Kelly, Chamber, and Coob left en masse. Miles himself had taken ill. limiting his performance time. By late spring of '63 however, Miles was back on track with a new band and two studio sessions that would eventually be released as Seven Steps to Heaven.
The album is really the melding of two bands. The LA sessions featured pianist Victor Feldman and drummer Frank Butler and mostly consisted of ballads. The NYC sessions featured Tony Williams on drums and Herbie Hancock on piano, which would eventually form the basis of the Miles’ second great quintet. Of the ballads though, I Fall in Love Too Easily is one of my favorites, just Miles at his finest with the backing band.
I know I don’t have many followers but this needs to get around. As a coach for a local swim team I am friends with a few youngsters. One in particular is 12 and insists that NICKLEBACK is better than QUEEN. Help me prove him wrong even though the whole freaking world knows the answer. Reblog and like. I need to prove something.
