Miles Davis: “No Blues” (1964)

This is Miles Davis performing “No Blues” on the Steve Allen Show in 1964. His band includes Wayne Shorter, Tony Williams, Herbie Hancock, and Ron Carter.

Miles Davis (1926-1991) was on the forefront of almost every development in jazz following WW II until his death including bebop, cool jazz, modal jazz and jazz fusion. You can see him here playing “So What” with John Coltrane, here playing “Footprints” and here playing “Walkin.”
