Mike Stern · Miles Davis

Freddie Freeloader – Mike Stern’s Solo

Six choruses of great playing by Stern on a jam session favorite, from the 2002 record ‘Four Generations of Miles’. Stern features alongside fellow Davis-band alumni George Coleman, Jimmy Cobb and Ron Carter.

Watch out for the extended 16th note phrases in this one – a Stern trademark perhaps, but his phrasing isn’t as clear on this recording as it usually is. As always with licks like this, slow metronome practice is best!
