first of all jazz is the only, truly indigenous American art form and it is fucking brilliant. Duke Ellington; "there are two types of music, good music and the other kind." Louis Armstrong; upon being asked "what is jazz?" he responds "If you have to ask you'll never know." Miles Davis recorded Kind of Blue in 1959 and it is a masterpiece.... it is almost supernatural in its creation and should be regarded as highly as some of mankind's most treasured works... it's Beethoven's 9th, or the Mona Lisa or Michelangelo's David. Miles was a visionary, a tireless creator much like Picasso, an iconoclast and perhaps one of the coolest most badass mofo's to do anything anywhere.... I love you Fang but now you're pissing me off!!
