Think you don't get paid enough for what you do?

Look at the pay sheet for one of the sessions that yielded half of his 
best-known album, Kind of Blue.

Miles was paid $129.36, while Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly, Wynton 
Kelly and Bill Evans were paid $64.67.

Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb, on bass and drums respectively, were paid 
$66.67, the extra two dollars for "cartage" of their instruments.

Thank God for residuals - they were essential!
