Harvey Brooks on Miles Davis

Harvey Brooks, besides being one of the stellar bass players of modern times, composed the beautiful 'Harvey's Tune' which was on 'Super Session' featuring Al Kooper & Steve Stills. He also played bass on Dylan's, 'Highway Sixty One Revisited': The Doors, 'Soft Parade' and Miles Davis' 'Bitches Brew' - to name just a few. There's news just in from Tucson that on Harvey's web site you can check out a cool video of the man himself talking about working with Miles Davis. It's a great insight into the recording of what is one of the great jazz albums of all time.

Great info. Thanks.
Though many jazz purists to not like 'Bitches Brew', that was the album that got me interested in jazz.
