Miles Davis, 1969 (Don Hunstein) When the photographer shot this portrait of Miles outside Davis' home on West 77th Street in June 1969, the jazz legend was at the midpoint between the sessions which would produce his two revolutionary jazz-fusion masterpieces: "In A Silent Way" (recorded in February '69) and "Bitches Brew" (recorded in August '69). Davis's recent move to electrified instruments is echoed in the psychedelic patchwork vest and custom-made wrap-around shades.
