Today would have been Miles Davis’ 96th birthday.
I’ve been listening to his music over the past couple of days. Considering the week that we’ve had as a country and on a personal level, Davis’ music has become a balm.
Songs like the classic So What & Freddie Freeloader from the landmark Kind of Blue album (still the best selling jazz album of time). Songs like Iris & Mood from the E.S.P. album. Or songs like Tutu and Portia from the Tutu album. Miles’ music catalog is vast and I could go on for awhile about all the songs I have listened too recently.
Miles Davis was one of the greats and his trumpet sound is distinct, unique, & unforgettable for music lovers. Here is my favorite Miles tune, All Blues from the Kind of Blue album. This song express a joy that is much needed. Happy Birthday Miles and Rest In Love!
