The Miles Davis Stamp: Dedication Ceremonies Set For NYC And LA

Via Chris Barton from the LA Times:

Combining the twin obsessions of music and philately, stamps commemorating Miles Davis and Edith Piaf will be dedicated at the the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City on June 12. The ceremony will include members of the Davis family, including his children Cheryl and Erin, as well as appearances by bassist Ron Carter and Blue Note president Don Was.

West Coast fans disappointed at the prospect of missing out on another New York-based jazz event can take heart, however. A second dedication is also planned for June 27 at the Hollywood Bowl’s museum terrace from 7 to 8 p.m. in advance of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s “A Celebration of Miles Davis” concert, which will be hosted by former Davis bandmate and the Phil’s creative chair for jazz, Herbie Hancock.
