“There’s No Jazz Anymore”

I just read the page turner, ‘Miles: The autobiography of Miles Davis’ and loved it.  Although, alot people claim Miles makes some false accusations in the book and that his memory didn’t serve him correctly. Maybe so, Miles still gets you with his soulful no BS vernacular.  All that history I don’t think I would have remembered a 1/3 of it had I been creamed half my career.  Miles introduced me to many artist I was in the dark about.  Highly recommended. 

” If you sacrifice your art because of some woman, or some man, or some colour, or for some wealth, you can’t be trusted.”

“Americans don’t like any form of art, man. All they like to do is make money…”

“when you see that thing on their face- like: “Entertain me.”

“…it makes me sick.”

“People who like music, they seem to like all types…”

“and they don’t care if you’re black or white”

“…the real music lover.


So What

“For me music and life are all about style.”

“I know what I’ve done for music, but don’t call me a legend. Just call me Miles Davis.”
