Has anyone out there read Miles Davis' Autobiography?

I am in the middle of it right now and in one passage, Miles describes the format that they played in the small clubs back in the late 40's early 50's. The owners wanted them to play 4 sets throughout the night with each one starting 20 minutes after the hour and running to the top of the hour (40 minute sets)

In that particular passage, Miles used the term "four-twenties"

Very interesting.
