Listen to an excerpt of Half Nelson:

Who’s playing? Matt Haimovitz + Uccello

Miles Davis’s 1948 bebop composition Half Nelson is re-cast in the style of his 1949 debut as a leader in the Birth of the Cool sessions. The head is har­monized in six parts as Gil Evans did with “Jordu”, “Boplicity” and others, with a Davis-like economical solo for the lead cello in the middle.
– David Sanford
