And for another, Clark Terry isn't Miles Davis. I have to say that for myself, I LIKE Terry's playing better than Miles's in absolute terms, while acknowledging that Miles is the more important and innovative musician. (My favorite jazz genre is the swing-era small group. so there's a bias.)But the emotional content that Terry injects is, in my opinion, gentler and more varied, if less intense, that what Miles gave us. More nostalgic perhaps.
I also feel the connection more in this rendition to the lyrics of Gershwin's original songs, to the heartbreak and resilience of spirit that the opera celebrates.
