“Gil Evans, with whom Davis had previously collaborated, helped compose, arrange, and produce the album, though he is not mentioned in the credits ? Evans co-composed “Petits Machins”, which he later recorded as “Eleven” with himself and Davis listed as co-composers. The song Mademoiselle Mabry (Miss Mabry), while credited to Davis, is actually Gil Evans’ reworking of The Wind Cries Mary by Jimi Hendrix (Davis and Evans had met with Hendrix several times to exchange ideas).? At the same time, some portions of the song resemble Mann, Weil, Leiber and Stoller‘s On Broadway.”
