"I spent five years, at least, working with Miles. Together, we recorded ESP, Nefertiti, Sorcerer -- and I can tell you; each of these albums instantly became jazz classics. Hey, we had Wayne Shorter playing tenor sax, Ron Carter on bass, Tony Williams played drums. That was great band we had... We continued to work together and he invited me to take part on his crucial recordings such as In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew. Again, Miles was very instrumental in my jazz career. He was free spirit and he basically allowed me to go ahead experimental approach to jazz sound."
