Cicely Tyson married Miles Davis on Nov. 26, 1981. The ceremony was conducted by Atlanta mayor Andrew Young at the home of actor Bill Cosby. Tyson and Davis divorced in 1988. I won’t say it’s a vital role, but Davis’ time with Tyson, who I think is just terrific, does coincide with his return to music after a long hiatus.
Sorcerer is one of my favorite records from the Second Quintet period. And it has one of the coolest album covers. Ever. Cicely!
