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!
