Vince Wilburn, Jr. checks out the Robert Glasper Experiment at The Exchange in LA, featuring from left-to-right, Chris Clarke (son of jazz great Stanley Clarke); Derrick Hodge, Robert Glasper and Stephen Thundercat Brunner. Wilburn, Jr. is wearing a hoodie in homage and support of Trayvon Martin.
He's a touchstone in jazz conversation, a cornerstone in jazz collections, and this gemstone is just one dazzling example of his genius. This particular ballad, penned by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, has become a dear old friend. Since its debut in the 1940 musical Higher and Higher it has been covered by one or two silken voices. Yet for emotional punch even Sinatra couldn't trump that trumpet, with Miles backed by Horace Silver at the piano, Percy Heath on bass and Art Blakey's whispered beat.
For 24 hours only, get the Miles Davis collection that his legions of American fans have most eagerly awaited at the exclusive PopMarket discount price of $64.99!
