'Lament for Lost Love'

Composition by drummer Mike Gillespie.

Here is a performance of a composition by Edmonton-based jazz drummer Mike Gillespie entitled Lament for lost love. It is in a jazz waltz style, featuring many ii-V-I type movements to various keys. It sounds quite a bit like a Miles Davis Quintet song from the late 1950s early 60s. Bob Tildesley's sound and improvisation is quite reminiscent of Miles.
