“Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself.”
– Miles Davis
About Miles Davis
Miles Davis, the innovative American jazz trumpeter famous for his languid, melodic style, was influential in the development of many forms of jazz. He was born in 1926 in Illinois. His mother wanted him to learn the violin, but he picked up the trumpet instead. He dropped out of Julliard to track down Charlie Parker and joined his quintet. He later nurtured many jazz greats in his own band. The album Kind of Blue is considered his masterpiece. He died in September 1991.
It was a cold wet and rainy Easter Sunday so instead of working in the yard I went to the shop and started a new bird. This will be Great Blue Heron and I am considering calling her Dignity. In this photo I was having a bit of trouble with my wire feed.
