MUSIC Retrospective

Over the last hundred or so years, jazz has proven itself to be one of the most dynamic and powerful genres of music in history. Jazz is a genre so vast and innovative that it begs to be classified as something fundamentally different from other types of music, as if it's more than just a different genre, but a different type of musical art entirely. Every genre from rock and roll to hip hop owes its existence to jazz, and no self-respecting musician alive today would be afraid to admit it. And out of all the dozens upon dozens of names that pushed music forward and revolutionized the way we think about music, one name seems to stand out above all the rest: Miles Davis.

With a career stretching over 57 records, four decades, and the full spectrum of sonic creativity, Miles Davis truly did, in his own words, "change music five or six times." In this gallery, we honor this music great.

Read on to learn more about Miles Davis, one of the greatest musicians of all time.
