That rings a bell. But I don't think Prince ever said those piano "sessions" were recorded. I think he just mentioned that Miles played a piano. Somewhere. Sometime. When he was around.

Maybe your memory is better with mine, you are right.

I found the quote!

I remember when Miles Davis came to my house. As he was passing by my piano, he stopped and put his hands down on the keys and played these eight chords, one after the other. It was so beautiful; he sounded like Bill Evans or Lisa [Coleman], who also had this way of playing chords that were so perfect. I was wondering whether he was playing games with me, because he wasn't supposed to be a keyboard player. And when he was finished, I couldn't decide whether it was him or an angel putting his hands on the keys.

Wow, great! So, I'm not mad smile

And, yes, it seems Prince did not press the 'record' button...

Thank you

You're welcome.

I forgot about Prince comparing Bill Evans and Lisa Coleman... I have nothing against Lisa, but, come on... smile
