Throwback: Happy 94th Birthday Miles Davis!

Miles Davis may be one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Copious amounts of ink — both real and virtual — have been spilled throughout Davis’ life and career. Delving deep into his biography and/or his career highlights aren’t super necessary but what I will say is throughout his career, he was instrumental in starting and developing the careers of a who’s who list of jazz history.

Today would have been Davis’ 94th birthday and to celebrate the occasion, I came across some live footage of electric era Miles filmed in the late 80s and early 90s, including his last performance ever, in Vienna, about a month or so before his death.
