walkin-personnelSolar (pronounced “so-LAHR”) is a jazz standard from the Miles Davis 1954 album Walkin’. Like so many other of Miles’ composition, there is some question to his authorship. It is said that Miles recorded this after hearing an earlier song, “Sonny”, written by Chuck Wayne in tribute to his band-mate Sonny Berman.
