"Miles is world’s best!
Because Coltrane is not from this planet"

— One lovely band mate of mine

Bemsha Swing was written by Thelonious Monk and Denzil Best

Click on the interpret to listen; The year behind the album title is the year of the session not of release; All links open in a new window;

EDIT: My favourite version of the Bemsha Swing is by Monk and featured in his Complete Prestige Recordings, unfortunatly I couldn’t find that version online.
