    Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991), better known as Miles Davis was an American jazz musician, trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. Widely considered one of the most influential and innovative musicians of the 20th century, Miles Davis was, together with his musical groups, at the forefront of several major developments in jazz music, including bebop, cool jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, post-bop and jazz fusion.

    It's so beautiful. I almost wish he had kept going in that Third Stream vein, but it's hard to be mad at the path his career took

    been getting into the Gil Evans stuff recently, on Miles Ahead at the moment. Porgy and Bess will be next

    Anyone have any takes/thoughts on listening to this stuff in mono vs. stereo?

    I think a lot of the stereo mixes from back then are pretty bad. Like panning half the instruments all the way one way and the rest all the way other way. It's silly and outdated
