Thiebaud & now Miles Dewey Davis - two personal icons. Melissa, please stop blogging about such distracting subjects. I'm not a strong-willed person. It's easy enough for me to neglect duties & tasks. The first time i heard Sketches of Spain was just like the first time i saw Thiebaud's Apartment Hill at the Nelson - "I like it". I don't really believe in "acquired tastes".

One fantasy of mine has always been to own a small jazz club & be able to play a trumpet or coronet with 1/1000 of the flavor of Miles. However, the closest that i come to having chops is pork which makes me Kind of Blue.

I meant to add: I "knew" that Miles had died, but i had forgotten because his artistry still lives on.
