Happy Birthday Miles Davis! May 26, 1926

Miles Dewey Davis III
American Jazz Trumpeter, Bandleader, & Composer
(1926 – 1991)


“For me,
music and life are all about style.”








Do not fear
mistakes.

There are none.”



“Sometimes
you have to play a
l
ong time
to be able to play like

yourself” “Music is as much about the silence
as it is about the notes.

Without silence, music is just noise.”




“If you understood everything I say,
you’d be

me!”










“A legend
is an old man with a cane
known for what he used to do.
I’m still doing it.”


“I know what I’ve done for music,
but don’t call me a legend.


Just call me Miles Davis.”
