A quintessential Renaissance Man, Davis continues to break records as the U.S. Postal Service‘s most successful and fastest-selling iconic stamp in recent years, with more than 23 million sold to date.
The spotlight currently is on Miles Davis, with the recent announcement of his biopic going into production this June, starring Don Cheadle, Ewan McGregor and Zoe Saldana.
