Especially for Korbee this ballet interpretation of Miles Davisís Sketches of Spain

Sketches of Spain is an album by Miles Davis, recorded between November 1959 and March 1960. The album pairs Davis with arranger and composer Gil Evans, with whom he had collaborated on several other projects, on a program of compositions largely derived from the Spanish folk tradition. (An extended version of the second movement of Joaquin Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez is also included, as well as a song called "Will o' the Wisp", from the ballet El amor brujo by Manuel de Falla.)

Sketches of Spain is considered to be one of the most accessible albums of Davis's career: the most recent edition of the Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD describes it as "elevated light music". Less improvisational than much other jazz, contemporaries suggested that Sketches of Spain was something other than jazz. Davis replied (according to Rolling Stone magazine), "It's music, and I like it".

The ballerina is again a sculpture from an outdoor exhibition in Callantsoog.
The background is an experimental picture of neon sights from a facade in Chamonix
The background of the WS is a picture of the dunes near Bloemendaal aan zee.

Both are just two pictures sticked together, no further PP-work

Hallo Rob.
Prachtig wat een sierlijk en bizonder beeld. Ook de kleur, maar ook je toelichting is passend.
De wijze waarop je dit weer geeft is voor mij perfect. Erg knap gedaan.

OlŠ Rob,
Superb presentation. Great shot and excellent lightinging.

interesting and special sculpture ! the presentation is great,
Sketches of Spain is in my collection of miles albums, by reading the title, I've just listen few notes to recall, and find that I didn't listened to it a lot ! as the first notes of "will o' the wisp" are sampled in a song of Jeru (hip hop) and I know more this song than the Miles album !
I keep the album under my hand and will re-listen it carefully, it's a shame to have lot of discs and don't know them like this !

Hallo Rob.
Zo te zien dans je aardig naar haar pijpen, toch ?
Excellent performed sculpture and a prachtige foto van gemaakt, Rob.
Groeten van Jan
