Artist's Description

This is another of the flowers from my show and poems for her.

Anyone who’s ever heard Miles Davis play would remember him forever!
Most people who wrote about music would say Miles was the greatest trumpet player who walked the earth!
His understanding of written music is well documented and this helps to understand the control her had over his music and its direction.
Miles was a genius pure and simple who left his mark across a broad spectrum of music!
And my poem is a tribute to his greatness!

Miles Davis hardly ever spoke and when he did is was so soft that most people missed it!
He turned his back up on the stage while he played the trumpet for us.
Miles was hard, hard as a rock, he learned that in the streets.
He could knock you out with a left and still hit that sweet B note and not even miss the beat!
But his music was so very deep that he proved a rock could cry!
Because in his music was his soul deep dark and full of problems.
He would open up the door for us to get a little peek, and that was why we loved Miles so, he was one of us.
But what we learned from this proud man as we listen to his struggle.
Was the ups and downs of his sweet notes where the very soul of life!
His music took us on a ride from blues to funk and then back to mother africa where it all started.
And then we road with Miles back down to his beloved jazz… some say where his fame is ever lasting.
Miles could hit a note and out it came so clear it chilled my soul!
And hit another and another and my whole body would lose control!
Miles music could wake the dead it was so full of joy, the angles up in heaven would clap and ask for more!
Miles played everything that he could his range was off the charts .
And now our Miles is here no more he’s playing up in heaven!
I can still hear him right now talking all kinds of shit as the lord waves his baton!
Saying “you don’t know this and you don’t know that let me direct this band”!
And then the Lord looks him right in the eyes and says……………………….. “Miles my man that why I brought you here!”
