Miles Davis was a legendary jazz musician, among his many other talents. As one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century we remember him today, 11 years after he died in 1991.
“Miles was the Scorsese and Coppola of jazz. He knew what you need to do to have a great production-lights, sound, position, script, etc. For him it was music and moving the people around to play what he heard. Almost to the man, most of us played a certain way with Miles that we never played again. Somehow he got you to do what he needed… and what you wanted.” —Dave Liebman played on On the Corner and Dark Magus among others
Miles is our skin of the day.
