Jazz 100 - Miles Davis 28 Jun 2017

Jazz 100 - Miles Davis image

His constant forging ahead into new territories makes Miles one of the few figures who can be said to have changed jazz forever - repeatedly. As a trumpeter, he created a signature sound that moved with him literally from bebop to hip hop, through cool lyricism to electronic abstraction to pop song interpretations; and as a bandleader he remains a talent-spotter without parallel.
