As I mentioned in a previous post, this week is a rather auspicious week in music: Yesterday Sun Ra Arkestra bandleader Marshall Allen celebrated his 97th birthday. Today, Stevie Nicks turned 73 — and it would have been Miles Davis‘ 95th birthday. Now, as I’ve publicly mentioned to people in my home John Coltrane was God and Miles Davis was Jesus. Seriously.
Happy birthday, Miles! Happy birthday wherever you are.
