Talkin’ Miles: Photos, Documentaries & Quotes

3-miles

  • “When Miles Davis played a simple phrase sometimes that expressed something with more elegance and beauty than any very technically accomplished phrase could say.” – Terence Blanchard, Choice Cuts
  • You might not think CMT.com would have an artists page for Miles Davis. Oh, but they do. It’s nothing super special, but CMT deserves a tip of the cowboy hat, for sure.
  • I watched The Miles Davis Story last night on Ovation TV. It’s definitely a documentary worth seeing whether you know nothing or everything about Miles Davis. Ian Carr is great. The old footage and focus on the early years is really good. It’s not a perfect doc on the life of Miles Davis. I still contend Ken Burns should do a 5-part series on Davis for PBS. But that’s just me. Of course there’s the movie!
