Gary Bartz on performing with Miles Davis

I like this:

Then as now, I never knew the names of the songs. We were playing music. Our concerts used to last an average of two hours, nonstop. People and musicians would be amazed at how we knew what song was what. We knew, but that was missing the point. It didn’t really matter about the names. What do you call a beautiful day?
