The Time Miles Davis Stole (or Borrowed) a Song—and How It Ended Up on His Tombstone [The Atlantic]

Down Beat Magazine interviewed Miles Davis in 1964 and asked him for his opinion on some music via a blind listening test, and checked his ability to pick out other musicians based on the way they played. [Noise Made Me Do It]

Jazz great Miles Davis loved his little Italian cars, but his reckless side took over one day and he crashed the car while carrying a few bags of white powder. Director and car collector James Glickenhaus just happened to be driving along the same stretch of road and jumped out to help. [Jalopnik]

Miles Davis dug my singing. He liked some of my songs. I recorded two vocals with him, and he recorded those two, and the aforementioned “Devil May Care.” He did an instrumental, and he commissioned me to write a Christmas song, which I did, called “Blue Xmas.” It was a satirical Christmas song, and we recorded it on Columbia with some other Columbia artists. [Houston Press]
