Miles blew up at everybody. In Coltrane's favorite words when asked what was Miles like he said, "I don't know, he always seemed to be pissed off". Read Ron Carter's Finding The Right Notes for more little tidbits about Miles, how he had Carter do about everything in the band, and how often he'd stiff them all for money. The only thing Miles had the most respect for and had his longest relationship with was his horn, and even that was a stormy pairing.When I was a kid I had a Miles Davis album that included a very slow version of this tune. It must have been recorded soon after the famous blowup between Miles and Monk, because it was just about farcical. I don’t remember which soloist, but one of the solos included a full rendition of Pop goes the Weasel, and during Miles’s solo, the piano was feeding him chords and arpeggios that could have also been from nursery rhyme tunes.
