  1. Aren’t the changes on Miles Davis’ version different than the original? I read somewhere, Wikipedia I think, that he used reharmonization and an 8 bar interlude. I also heard Brubeck say in an interview that his melody is different two. Just getting into the song myself so I have not figured it out yet.
