May 26, 1926 Miles Davis, Happy Birthday: In His Words & Music, My Voice
In the background, you will hear the sounds of a genius. As I reenact the words and mastery of the incomparable late great Miles Davis. I will be reading from the famous interview he did for Playboy Magazine in 1962. Miles was 36-years-old at the time and he discussed a myriad of issues as well as informing us about his music. We all must remember that Miles Davis not only had a great musical talent but he was a social conscious black man who commanded respect and stood strongly behind his brothers and sisters in the struggle for civil justice.
