In honor of the 70th anniversary of Miles Davis’s legendary debut, Birth Of The Cool, Universal Music Enterprises in association with Thomas Jarrett and Dreambear has created a visual interpretation of “Boplicity”. This groundbreaking work of art, featuring Miles Davis’s own sketches, imagines a dream-like journey of Miles coming into his own, as the creator of “cool”.
One of the giants of 20th century music, Miles Davis stands out as one of the most significant jazz musicians of all time. Unlike most players who develop their sound and style early in life and then spend the rest of their careers polishing their approach without making any major changes, Davis was always looking ahead towards new innovations and styles. While he matured during the bebop era, he was at least partly responsible for founding and popularizing cool jazz, hard bop, modal music, his own brand of avant-garde jazz and fusion. While his cool melancholy sound on the trumpet remained the same, his settings were always up to date and he was a masterful talent scout, only equalled by Fletcher Henderson and Art Blakey.
