For Miles Davis, every note was a thought. Nothing just happens in music. Music comes after a lot of things like thought, skill, body control, and is some very special cases, people who are so advanced beyond normal human excellence, people who live is a world so different than the ordinary, everyday tedium, what happens is beyond explanation. Miles was that far beyond everyone else.
Miles never played without knowing what the sound should be, would be. He thought in sound.
Brilliant doesn’t begin to describe the man, his music, his sound. We are very fortunate to have the body of his work to listen to, to watch and to marvel at. Miles was even better than that.
