World of Jazz Podcast 44 – Miles vs Sonny

Following on from last weeks Miles vs Herbie show – which seemed to be popular – this week I’m putting Miles up against Sonny Rollins.

So we have a selection of cuts from the classic Prestige sessions between 1951-1956 when the Miles Davis band featured Sonny Rollins – with a selection Miles’ own compositions from the sessions and three tunes from Rollins.

  3. Miles Davis – The Serpents Tooth
  4. Benny Golson – Airegin
  5. Miles Davis – Airegin
