yeah that is totally what they are doing....riding the B 2 extra times .....thanks 8

I found this great live version

very interesting what they do to the form....I love it

it seems in this version under solos they play 6 measures of 3/4 and just 2 measures of 4/4 in the B .

I for the life of me cannot make sense of the form change and when the B hits under the solos
Yeah, I totally hear what you mean!

Sounds like 6 measures of 3/4 and 2 measures of 4/4 during the B. That's exactly what I think is going on.

I do hear the 3/4 in Miles 1st chorus. It starts at 1:23. But as you say, it follows the altered B form you mention. It seems like the rest of the solos follow that as well.
