Salt Peanuts, Salt Peanuts

Miles Davis was young and sat in on these jazz sessions, and he couldn't do what he wanted to do. He would get up in these high registers on the trumpet and squeak and squawk because he had these brilliant ideas, but he didn't have the chops to do anything with them yet.

Today, I get inspired by bebop jazz. For all you cool cats out there, skat over to the Misfits blog.

It's hard to imagine Miles Davis doing any squawking.

Nice to hear that even the greats had beginnings, and visions they had to reach for.
