November 14, 2017 Record of the Day

With nine Grammy Awards, Miles Davis was a Jazz giant as a band leader and trumpet player. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he was born into a wealthy home. While at the Julliard School he began playing with Charlie Parker and other Jazz greats. But, like many of his contemporaries, he became addicted to drugs. It was actress Cicely Tyson who helped him beat his addictions. They were married in 1981. His 1952 10-inch album “Young Man With a Horn,” released on Blue Note Records, is worth up to $750.00 today.
