Okay, different people have their favorite periods of Miles. Everyone seems to love "Kind Of Blue", but how about Miles' playing with Bird, "Birth Of The Cool", "Miles Smiles" or "Bitches Brew" and beyond. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Miles is the window into the history of modern jazz. What are your views or opinions on his music (any of his recordings) - on his influence on music and/or trumpet playing - on the other musicians he brought to prominence. This is wide open - so take a shot - pro or con or a mixture of both.
