Talkin’ Miles: Awards, Images & Clubs


  • The Moviegoer, switching over to The Musicgoer for a spell, features a profile he wrote for SEE Magazine (Edmonton) on jazz legend Jimmy Cobb.
  • “They would come to love opera, especially “Tosca” and Chet Baker, Mahler and Miles Davis, 25-year-old scotch and good pinot noir, as my daughters do. Perhaps they, too, would become actors or quirky writers like their dad.” — J.P. DEVINE: For all of my life
  • Do you like beautiful jazz photography? Here are some choice shots from Herman Leonard, including ‘Miles Davis at Birdland in New York.’ The photo in the collection was one of 8,000 prints that were destroyed in Leonard’s New Orleans home when a levee just a few blocks from him home burst open in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. But 70,000 negatives were saved after being rushed into the vault of a nearby museum.
  • Marking the 50th anniversary of London’s famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho, BFI Southbank  is paying tribute to the venue’s legacy by hosting a celebration called Jazz in June through June 28. Footage of Miles Davis is part of the June in Jazz festival.
