A Birthday Video Tribute to Miles Davis

Today is the 85th Anniversary of Miles Dewey Davis’ birth.

People who are far more learned than I claim to be, have spilled much ink over this man and his influence on jazz, on music and on our society as a whole. So I won’t spill much more.

I’ll just say that Miles was/is THE greatest of all time. You can argue about that if you want, but you’ll do it by yourself. My mind is made up.

Here are a few video clips to celebrate by. I hope you dig ’em!

(The music starts at around 00:58. Stay with it. It’s 100 times hipper than anything on TV today!)
