Saturday tunes: "Freddie the Freeloader"

(Update: The anniversary release comes out on Tuesday. See below.)

This is from the magnificent "Kind of Blue" album, which Miles Davis--and saxophonists John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley, pianists Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb--recorded 50 years ago.

An anniversary re-issue, with goodies, will be released on Tuesday, February 3rd. Of all those musicians, only Jimmy Cobb is alive today (he's 80).

(Shout out to Michael, thanks to whom I first heard this album better late than never.)
