    "Mating Call", which should be tagged as by Tadd Dameron with John Coltrane is currently redirect to John Coltrane. It would be good if people could go and vote for the two-person tag as being correct; it's clearly credited to both of them, and it's absurd to have it redirect to Coltrane (slightly better, but still absurd to have it redirect here).

    His 'Big Ten' came before Miles Davis's nonet.

    Trumpet? I'm impressed by how he makes it sound like a piano. Genius!
