    Miles Dewey Davis III was an American bandleader and trumpeter, born on May 26, 1926 in Alton, Illinois and dead on September 28, 1991 in Santa Monica, California. One of the most important figures in jazz music history, he is best known for his seminal modern jazz album Kind Of Blue (1959), the highest selling jazz album of all time with six million copies sold.

    Miles went to NYC to study at the academic school for musicians, where he met Charlie Parker. They started playing together from 1945. In 1948 Miles Davis started to make his own ensembles, at that time he met Gil Evans, The Miles Davis Nonet was born. From the few recordings they made in 1949 to 1950 came the album Birth Of The Cool (1956), with Davis and Evans going on to work more together in the future.

    Miles Davis was one of the musicians who introduced the 'Hard Bop' in the mid 1950s. In the late 1960s, he started to experiment with electronic instruments and rock and funk rhythms. In the mid 1970s, he stopped playing because of health problems, though in 1980, he made an 'electronical' comeback.

    Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 (Performer).
