HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MILES DAVIS!

Miles Davis is my guy and although most people note Bitches Brew as his best work, I have to go with Birth of the Cool as one of my absolute favorite albums of all time. Ever.  I think I could even hum the entire album note for note. I also love him for being married to one of the sassiest, most underrated females ever [exhibit a] for a short period of time.The album got heavy play last year and is still sometimes the default background music when I can’t think of anything else to listen to.  Here’s a video of a 1968 concert. I’ve only provided the first part and encourage you to watch the other three that complete this four-part series.
