I don't understand that.
thats because you are mis quoting it
I should type more clearly I guess
I was saying that Blakeys jazz messengers were introducing hard bop......new thought.....the Coltrane quartet and Miles band were taking a more modal approach to what Blakey and others were doing
more clear now?
actually Kind Of Blue brought modal main stream ....which was a whole different Miles outfit than I mentioned
now that I read it back it was confusing
