Herbie Hancock tells a story about playing with Miles Davis: “Miles was playing one of his amazing solos, and right in the middle of it, I played the wrong chord – completely wrong.“
Herbie was mortified. How was Miles going to respond? He could be angry – after all, Herbie just spoilt his solo! Would he just walk off the stage and refuse to play with him ever again? Or at the other extreme, would he just try it pretend it never happened (even though everyone knows it did)? What would you do in that situation?
