Miles Davis playing in Miles mode. Not sure of the Memphis to Harlem connection in the song, but we know he played in Harlem’s Mintons, Lenox Lounge and he was married to actress and Harlemite Cicely Tyson in the early 1980′s.
Word is that part of the base recording from which the album In A Silent Way was subsequently assembled.
