Christmas Eve, 1954…

…the day Miles, Monk and Milt (with Percy Heath and Kenny Clarke) recorded “Bags’ Groove.” “Bags” was vibes player Milt Jackson’s nickname.

I love the way old jazz records, like Victorian graveyards, give exact dates. This reminded me of the “Odd Couple Theme” when I first heard it. Now I think of  Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants being in the studio on Christmas Eve. Who says artists don’t work?

What do you think?
