Dear Steve,
I agree.
Which means we are back to listmate Dick Baker's original question.
Where did the Ray Ellington group get it from?
Or was is it theirs?
If so, what is it called?
Incidentally, I've never been able to access music clips from Amazon, 
so once again I've been protected from the music of Miles Davis!
Kind regards,
Bill (who someone once said "has a patch over both eyes.")
