Miles Davis At Peacock Alley & 1953 Interview

miles-4 This is from an old post, but a post I love because of the photos and the awesome, and quite rare, 1953 audio interview with Miles Davis in St. Louis.

Miles stopped by radio station KXLW to visit with DJ Harry Frost and his Fresh Air program.

They also have an incredible photo archive, which includes Miles Davis. Here is a link to photos taken by Bernie Thrasher from the infamous Peacock Alley gigs. One is a close up of Miles (above), and the others, found HERE, are a) Philly Joe Jones, b) Miles and Paul Chambers and c) Coltrane with Chambers, Miles and Red Garland in the background.
