Well, it turns out Miles meets and marries the Queen of Funk, Betty Davis, who then introduces Miles to Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone which gives him the inspiration to experiment with the fusion of the trumpet with psychedelic rock. Miles goes on to produce Bitches Brew, one of the greatest jazz albums of all time, and ushers in a new era of jazz fusion. It is later speculated that the name was a tribute by Betty Davis and her girlfriends and that Betty actually supplied the name for the album. On top of all this, Betty was a model and introduced Miles to the fashion world.
All good ideas originate from somewhere. They are borrowed, mixed and matched, blended together to make something new, even stolen.
Miles Davis wasn’t just cool cause he could play the trumpet. He played the trumpet in a cool way.
