What are some similarities and Differences between Miles Davis blue in green and Dave Brubeck Quartet take five? I am having a hard time understanding there differences and similarities between the two jazz groups. I think I found an answer. Miles and his group were more mellow and didn't go as fast through songs. You see, Miles was brought up by Dizzy and Charlie Parker so he inherited some of their sounds. Its my guess Dave had a similar upbringing and that he was inspired by the same people giving him a similar sound. But there definitely is a difference.
