Miles Davis: Unpublished Pictures of the Jazz Legend, From a Gig in New York in 1958 - LIFE
Miles Ahead, Miles Davis, 1958 Miles, Miles 1958, Music Maker, Jazz Photography, Echo Music, Life Photographers, Jazz Artists
In 1958 Miles Davis explained his shift to a new style in The Jazz Review: "The music has gotten thick. Guys give me tunes and they're full of chords. I can't play them. . . . I think a movement in jazz is beginning away from the conventional string of chords, and a return to emphasis on melodic rather than harmonic variation. There will be fewer chords but infinite possibilities as to what to do with them.

"Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God." - Abraham Lincoln, 10/3/1863
