I've removed the "also known as" claim, because it doesn't seem to have ever been known as "Women/Girls of Kilimanjaro" - that's the translation from the French and it's often appended to the name. I've also removed the claim that it was the first ever use of the electric piano on one of Miles's albums - one of the tracks on Miles in the Sky also uses Fender Rhodes. --Andrew Norman 15:08, 9 May 2005 (UTC)

I've heard that Gil Evans had a large part in composing and/or arranging some of the songs on this album. Is there a reliable source for this? -- Gyrofrog (talk) 21:11, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

I've removed unattributed text which asserted that "Mademoiselle Mabry" refers to Davis' marriage ending after his wife left him for Jimi Hendrix. The story doesn't make much sense, seeing how Davis & Davis were married the same month that he recorded the song. I believe they were still married when they both attended Hendrix' funeral in 1970. Whatever happened in between should cite its source(s), especially as it involves a still-living person. I doubt it's particularly relevant for this article, in any case. "The Wind Cries Mary" comparison makes sense, but needs a source, so I've removed that as well. I'll try and add more while I've got some references within reach. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 02:59, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

I've just consulted Szwed's biography. Evans was indeed involved, and "Mademoiselle Mabry" is his re-working of "The Wind Cries Mary." -- Gyrofrog (talk) 04:39, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
