Today is marks Miles Dewey Davis’ 86th birthday.  There’s so much to say about this man, his life and the mark he left on the music world with his special brand of Jazz and musical composition.

Many have come after him, imitating him but none could ever quite been able to replicate him.  His music was his own.  His vision of Jazz was truly unique and the inspiration he left was phenomenal.

His music and ability to speak sweeping melodies with his trumpet sends chills up ones spine.  His music comprises of what is referred to as the classics or standards.  He is missed but alas we still remain ever inspired.

Here are a few of his best for your enjoyment.  Happy Birthday Brother Miles.
