Herbie on Miles

21 November 2008

In a review of the wildly overpriced (and largely unnecessary) “50th anniversary edition” of Kind of Blue, there’s a fabulous quote by Herbie Hancock about Miles Davis:

“When you’re touched by Miles Davis you’re changed for ever. But what you change to, is more of who you really are.”

Picture is from Bebop: The Essentials which has a few (too few) great short profiles of some of the musicians who made the bebop sound.
