Self Portrait #3 – Ode to MDQ
This is the third installment of the video series “Self Portraits.”
Over my short career as a jazz musician, the music of the Miles Davis Quintet has always been a strong source of inspiration. In this video my improvisation is based on a couple of my favorite standards that were recorded by the MDQ – “Straight No Chaser” from the album “Milestones” and “E.S.P.” from the Album “E.S.P.”
