Miles Ahead Query Form

Select one or more items from the drop-down lists. You can do combination queries using more than one list, e.g. to find performances of "A Night in Tunisia" featuring John Coltrane, or German appearances of the Miles Davis Quintet in 1967. Many multi-parameter queries will not return any results, so don't be alarmed if such a query comes up empty. Last updated: 8/11/2017.

Search in session notes

Search in tune comments

       

The Search in session notes option allows you to search the notes to the sessions in the database -- e.g., you might look for sessions whose notes contain the words "Café Bohemia." By using the Search in tune comments option you can search the comments on individual tunes, announcements, and introductions -- e.g., you can look for the show where Symphony Sid Torin introduces "little Miles Davis" or the studio chatter where Davis complains, "Someone wake Cannonball up, he's snorin'... Don't snore on my solo, bitch!"
