"Rumor has it that Miles Davis had trouble deciding who was going to follow Herbie Hancock into the Davis band, Stanley Cowell or Chick Corea; a comparison of the pianists with Hutcherson suggests that Corea and Cowell were equals in terms of being virtuoso soloists in McCoy Tyner/Herbie Hancock lineage."

—Ethan Iverson

"The first jazz album I made was with Miles, and the last album he made was with me."

Start discovering and sampling more from here. Word to Miles Davis himself: take what you want out and leave what you don't like.

"I don't like that word jazz... I think social music. All the social melodies, out in the air. It's not jazz anymore. That's the social music I'm talking about. You take what you want out and leave what you don't like. You know, like food."

—Miles Davis
