Miles Davis was an American jazz musician and considered to be one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.
I don’t know when I discovered Miles, but when I did, it was his masterpiece from 1959, Kind of Blue, that fell into my hands. It was considered to represent the spirit of jazz.
Spinning Kind of Blue does something to your insides. I’m not sure if it’s his peaceful trumpet or the musical arrangement of the album, but when I need to get the mind straight, it acts as a great reset button for me. You should have Kind of Blue in your catalog of music. If you don’t, stop reading this and buy it now.
I found this video a couple weeks ago and wanted to share it, but did not, and it’s now started to make the rounds on the internet.
It’s a video mash-up of Miles and the LCD Soundsystem done with no editing, just two YouTube videos side by side only using the volume control and the skip button.
Check it out and I think you’ll get the vibe of both Miles and the LCD Soundsystem. Go buy Kind of Blue now!
One of my favorite LCD Soundsystem songs, “All My Friends.”
Check out this short piece on the Miles Davis album, Kind of Blue.
