So What

This lick is the theme of 'So What' from the Miles Davis album 'Kind of Blue'.

This first-take, unrehearsed Miles Davis session from 1959 is a true masterpiece. It was the key recording of what became modal jazz, a music free of fixed harmonies and forms.
The band itself is extraordinary (proof of Miles Davis's masterful casting skills), listing John Coltrane and Julian "Cannonball" Adderley on saxophones, Bill Evans (or, on "Freddie Freeloader," Wynton Kelly) on piano, and the crack rhythm unit of Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums.

Miles Davis inspired countless musicians from a number of genres, he is a true legend.



This is from one of the few jazz albums I own. Good work :)


I need to introduce you to some more Jazz then! :D You'll like my selection :D


Very nice. After studying that I found cool sounding chord variations on 2nd, 3rd and 4th string. Next I founded myself lost to jamming with this and where it leads half an hour.

5 stars
