While Miles Davis was on tour in Baltimore in 1984, he agreed to appear on a daytime cable talk show called Cityline. For whatever reason, the hosts didn't bother to do a stitch of research and admitted as much to Davis. One of the hosts even asks Davis if he played with Charlie Parker. Astonished by the dopey questions, Davis eventually lets them have it. The interview is so bad, you see Davis start to feel sorry for them and those asking him silly questions on the show. Lazy hosts aside, Davis is hugely entertaining and insightful, and his answers are as soft and dry as his horn. Killer fashion to boot.
I love jazz because of its ability to evoke such tremendous emotion... primarily joy!
I was first exposed to jazz by my grandparents.
The first jazz record I bought was Jim Beard's Song of the Sun or maybe Steely Dan's Aja.
My advice to new listeners: remain varied in your listening habits, and of course keep listening, keep listening, keep listening!
