Miles Davis Birthday ♥♥



Miles by Irving Penn 


❝ Jazz is the big brother of Revolution. 
Revolution follows it around. 

❝ It’s like, how did Columbus discover America when the Indians were already here? What kind of shit is that, but white people’s shit? 

- Miles Davis - 

May 26, 1926 - September 28, 1991 

Miles Davis
We are all visitors to this time, this place. 
We are just passing through. 
Our purpose here is to observe, 
to learn, to grow, to love .... 
and then we return home.
