Miles Davis and his time: the paths of silence. Jazz between 1945 and 1990 URL: http://www.march.es/conferencias/anteriores/voz.aspx?p1=2720&l=2
Probably the musician that most exactly represents the true changing spirit of jazz is Miles Davis, trumpeter and composer, author of uncountable master pieces (Birth of the cool, Kind of blue, Bitches Brew,85), he never looked back into what had been already done and only thought about what was pending to be done. Miles showed the way to his contemporaries, for whom he was a reference and a source of inspiration. He created styles -from "cool jazz" to "jazz rock", and including "modal jazz, its diverse orchestral experiences, or his adventure in the border of atonality-, he invented a sound, endorsed careers -what musician in modern jazz has been able to escape from his influence?-, and none of it was as important for him in comparison to whatever he had in his hands at that time. Always changing, always loyal to himself: Miles Davis.
