Chasin’ The Bird is a live album by Miles Davis.
It was recorded at the Royal Roost inn 1948 and was released on the Arpeggio Blues label in 2000. It previews some of the tracks that appeared on the Birth Of The Cool studio album.
Playing on the album according to Wikipedia are:
Miles Davis – trumpet,
Kenny “Pancho” Hagood – vocals,
Lee Konitz – alto sax,
Gerry Mulligan – sax,
Al McKibbon – bass,
Max Roach – drums.
However I think this is a nonet performance from the Royal Roost between August 30 and September 18, 1948 as the band opened for Count Basie.
