Miles Davis - Suitcase of memories

The late, great Miles does a rendition of Cyndi Lauper's 'Time after time'. 

Many people could play horn with more flair than Miles, but he kept things relatively simple. My favourite story about Miles is when he attended some Ronald Reagan award event in the 80s. He was asked by some blue-rinsed Republican lady what he had done to deserve being invited to this momentous occasion.

The notoriously unkind Miles replied that he had re-invented music at least 3 times in his life, then asked the lady 'why the fuck are you here? Just cos you are an old white b*tch f*cking some senile senator?'.

Flashback to warm times always left behind...
