Miles Straight Ahead

Robin Jensen's avatar Robin Jensen

Miles Straight Ahead: Innovation,Turmoil and Peace... Miles Davis always moved forward... He had a compulsion to innovate, Push jazz to new heights... Miles high... His fantastic innovations in jazz Always continued forward... straight ahead... He never turned back, Even to a classic like “Kind of Blue.” Never stayed stylistically static. He progressed from bebop To cool jazz... hard bop, Modal jazz and jazz fusion... Continually innovating, Undeterred by turmoil, anger And addiction. Then... The “Kind of Blue” album! An acclaimed classic... (Still!) Redemption from turmoil and struggle. His trumpet sound was always cool... A clear signature tone. No vibrato, man! A right straight ahead sound... With an attitude of social justice, Searching for that higher Peace, Innovation and Peace... Redemption and Peace.
