When I was a teenager and my brother was a young adult we got turned on to jazz music (and it was the start of a beautiful relationship between us and the music) . When we frequented the 1,200,000 square feet shopping mall “Opry Mills” in Nashville, Tennessee, we always stopped by (at the time) Tower Records. They had a fine jazz section in their massive store and we would spend hours upon hours delving into the music and usually taking something home with us that night.
For jazz music I have always been a sucker for the trumpet and its flare. Before I ever knew or really could conceive just how big Miles Davis was in the jazz world (by listeners, by critics, by sales) he was at the top of my list for favorites. Today he remains my favorite jazz musician of all-time and I place him within my top four genius’ of music along with Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and John Williams.
Now I am 27 (as of Jan. 2010) and my life has been dedicated a lot to music. I am a professional DJ residing in Tokyo, Japan. A connoisseur of music. Given the right type of party that I am hired for I am sure to be found playing Miles Davis songs spanning many different eras for 1) because it sounds great! 2) because I always am trying to spread the gospel and educate people about his music.
I am in fact an official Miles Davis connoisseur. Miles Davis is the birth of cool and I credit a lot of my image taken from what he has done before me. I have also in fact self-proclaimed myself as "the Miles Davis of DJs” and I am quite proud of that.
