Happy 80th Miles!

I'm not sure whether anyone's noticed but on May 26th it's the 80th anniversary of the birth of jazz trumpet legend Miles Davis (1926-1991) . I remember when i first heard Miles i didn't really understand his music - allIi wanted was crazy pyrotechnics. But onceIi got over all thatIi really began to appreciate what Miles does when he plays.

Miles Davis is probably one of the few trumpet players ever who could make the trumpet sound like an extension of their voice (the only otherIi know is Louis Armstrong). There is no-one quite like him and he changed the face of jazz forever.

If you wanna learn more about the man and his music try visiting www.miles-davis.com or check out the Wikipedia article here.
