Miles Davis

That cat would have turned 83 today. His last album suggested one possible direction for Miles - namely merging hip-hop and jazz sensibilities (although that album, Doo Bop was a pretty mediocre effort - the horn was solid, but the raps were awful). I wonder what he would have made of Nu Jazz, or perhaps Soil and Pimp Sessions' death jazz. Regardless, Miles left behind one hell of a legacy.

Here's an interview of Miles from back in 1989.
