Miles Davis is the most revered jazz trumpeter of all time, not to mention one of the most important musicians of the 20th century.

He was the first jazz musician of the post-hippie era to incorporate rock rhythms, and his immeasurable influence on others, in both jazz and rock, encouraged a wealth of subsequent experiments. From the bebop licks he initially played with saxophonist Charlie Parker to the wah-wah screeds he concocted to keep pace with Jimi Hendrix, Davis was as restless as a performer could get.

I own a handful of his albums, including of course, \‘Kind of Blue\’ (1959). Dispensing with chords as the basis for improvisation, favoring instead modal scales and tone centres, the five tracks he released on this groundbreaking album have gone on to become some of jazz\‘s most well known. On the 50th anniversary of its release, \‘Kind of Blue\’, which is the best-selling jazz record of all time, received a deluxe re-release treatment with extra tracks from the sessions being included.

Amongst the portraits I have produced, this one is a particular favourite of my wife\‘s, which pleases me no end for it represented a challenge on several counts……
