Miles Photo of the Week: Closeup 1967

By 1967, when this intimate portrait of Miles Davis was captured by Columbia Records VP of Creative Services Bob Cato, the trumpeter was in another golden era, working with his "second great quintet," a lineup which included Wayne Shorter (saxophone), Herbie Hancock (keyboards), Ron Carter (bass) and Tony Williams (drums). Cato had worked as the photographer on E.S.P., the quintet's first studio album for Columbia Records, in 1965. More info on this photo is available at
