I turned to your post, ironically, as I was listening Jin Hall's Concierto, which, as I'm sure you know, is another remake of Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez, as is Sketches. All our wonderful though I prefer Hall's version with Chet Baker, Paul Desmond, Roland Hanna, Ron Carter. Hauntingly beautiful, and, for my tastes, more orginal than Sketches. That being said, I'd welcome the notes you speak of and thanks so much for sharing.
Ferrari, please add my name to the list as well; and thanks so much for sharing. BTW, there is also a segment on "The Miles Davis Story" DVD which covers the "Sketches of Spain" recording sessions, as well as the genesis behind the idea to do it. I can say without reservation, that if you are a Miles devotee, you will find something to like about the rest of this film too.
Note: Those of you that want this will have to send me an e mail through Audiogon as I cannot post this to an outgoing email through Audiogon.
Yes I have the Jim Hall version as well. Both are great with a different interpretation to the music. I enjoy both immensely, although I feel the CD version of Miles Davis Sketches of Spain falls a little short of the early Columbia 6 eye vinyl.
Hmmm...I started buying Columbias (The Byrds) in 1965. I was 13 and noticed by 1969 that every Columbia I bought, whether The Byrds, Dylan, Santana, etc. sounded bad compared to, say, Warner Bros., Reprise, or a bunch of small labels. I remember reading an article in Rolling Stone in about 1970-71 that complained about the poor sound quality of Columbia records.
Me too. Thanks! I've only heard it on CD. Perhaps the most frustrating disc in my collection. Love the music, hate the recording. Trumpets sound like the mike was shoved right in front of the the bell. The soundstage makes me think the band was lined up on both sides of a hallway. Very weird, no other recording I've ever heard sounds quite the way this one does. I'm very curious to read about the recording of this session.
