quote of the week:

"After the Bitches Brew album Miles asked me to tour with the band. I declined. I had some other projects working and also felt a little insecure in the jazz idiom. I missed a great opportunity to expand my musical vocabulary."

-Bassist Harvey Brooks

From my interview with Harvey Brooks
