Old School Friday: Ron Carter, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter

My father enjoyed ol' school jazz. He had hours of reel-to-reel tapes of jazz musicians that he would listen to in his study or in the living room. He never really talked with me about the specific artists that he liked. I have to believe that Miles Davis was on his short list. My dad passed away a few years ago. I listened to this 1963 set by Davis, Herbie Hancock and others that was recorded in Stockholm ... and I thought of my Dad.

I hope you enjoy the vibe as well!
