Singing in church choirs & school plays, somehow music was always around. Penned a paper on the Autobiography of Miles Davis and the most memorable part of the read was how Miles would play the trumpet with his back turned to the audience. “Kind of Blue” is a playlist I frequently enjoy.
For now, you can find thousands of sites on his work and influence. Do enjoy the links and pics below.

Don Cheadle, who is set to portray Miles and direct the film is forth coming. Looking forward.

The Hand of Miles Davis by Irving Penn
Many more quotes to post and share, however, I’ll leave that to you if you’re courageous enough to go that extra mile to care.

*This post is in honour of Miles who entered my world thirteen yrs ago today.
*The transition date of Miles Davis is also the transition date of a woman who will forever be a fabric in my life-quilt and the day I joined my life-partner almost twenty yrs ago in “keeping it moving”.
