    Davis was coaxed into the studio by Larry and Julie Coryell, to whom he had been introduced by his friend Eleana Steinberg. Steinbergʼs attentions were apparently helping to get Davis off cocaine and alcohol, and he began composing again. These items, on which Davis plays only organ, are just riffs, with the standard flashy excesses of late-1970s fusion. Apparently Davis and/or Steinberg suggested as the title for this tune „Amanaura,“ but it was copyrighted as „Miss Last Summer.“ (See the interviews with keyboard player George Pavlis and Eleana Steiberg on George Coleʼs The Last Miles website.) Davis was very happy with this music, and he wanted Coryell, whom he called „Notes Anonymous“ on account of his tendency to play too many notes, to join a band. Coryell wisely declined. Davis was in no condition to play in a band, much less lead one. It would be more than two years before he returned to regular touring.

    Miles Davis und Eleana (Steinberg) Tee Cobb (so heisst sie übrigens, weil sie Richard Tee und danach Jimmy Cobb geheiratet hat – Tee starb 1993 viel zu jung … und davor war sie wohl mit David Liebman liiert und ist auch auf dessen ECM-Album „Lookout Farm“ als Sängerin zu hören).
