One of the tunes on the classic Miles Davis Kind Of Blue recording, "Freddie Freeloader" is given a new set of running clothes from pianist Chano Dominguez. The additional instrumentation provided by palmas (hand clapping) make this, and Dominguez's other Davis tracks on the recently released Flamenco Sketches, sparkle.
