Ron Carter & Miles Davis: Eighty-One

Two versions of a classic Carter-Davis piece, Eighty-One. First, here’s the original, a performance from 1965 that still has its avant-garde edge.

Performed by Miles Davis (trumpet), Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), Herbie Hancock (piano), Ron Carter (bass), and Tony Williams (drums) (7 minutes)


And a new arrangement for big band recorded in 2016. The sharp edges are filed down in this one, but this performance has hot solos by trumpeter Marcus Printup and trombonist Elliot Mason.

Performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (8 minutes)
