“My future starts when I wake up in the morning and see the light…Then I’m grateful.”-Miles Davis, American Musician

“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” –Confucius

Miles Davis was born today in 1926. He was a great, timeless trumpeter who left a lasting legacy on the world of Music. “Miles Davis is the most revered jazz trumpeter of all time, not to mention one of the most important musicians of the 20th century. He was the first jazz musician of the post-hippie era to incorporate rock rhythms, and his immeasurable influence on others, in both jazz and rock, encouraged a wealth of subsequent experiments. From the bebop licks he initially played with saxophonist Charlie Parker to the wah-wah screeds he concocted to keep up with Jimi Hendrix, Davis was as restless as a performer could get.” (Rollingstone.com)

In our home, Miles Davis lps and cds abound. Our kids were raised listening to all of the Jazz greats (and folkies, too, I might add…and classical).

  1. Kind of Blue…one of my favorite albums. You’re kids are fortunate to be exposed to such a diverse musical library in their own home.
