Miles Davis (1926-1991)

Join WRTI on Tuesday, May 26th as we celebrate on the of coolest cats to ever grace the stage...the legendary Miles Dewey Davis.

Miles was known to be in the right place at the right time, as he always seemed to choose the perfect personnel to join him on his evolutionary recordings, which helped to hurl him into international stardom.  He also launched the careers of many a jazz legend, and had enormous influence over some artists whom he never even met.

As we celebrate Miles by playing his music starting at 6 pm and through the night, we'll also bring you the music of his famous sidemen, and other artists with whom he collaborated and influenced. Expect to hear music from Shirley Horn, John Coltrane, and Charlie Parker, along with artists who had lesser-known Miles connections, including Wynton Marsalis.  

You'll also hear special features by Bob Perkins recounting some interesting Miles moments!
