10 Key Miles Davis Albums

A pal sent over a long-buried piece I edited for VH1’s Web site a few years ago. It was to spotlight Miles’ artistic breadth and celebrate Black History Month, which is once again coming to a close in the next few days, donchaknow. I’m not sure that I’d choose the same 10 titles if I had to do it all over again. But it’s a nice snapshot. Here, too, is K. Leander Williams’ spin on 10 Key Nina Simone tunes, and a team effort on 20 Great Bob Marley Songs, pieces also included in that 2007 presentation. C. Bottomley shared the writing duties on the latter. Into Marley? Check this chat with photographer Kate Simon as well.
