Musician Biography

One of the most famous and influential jazz musicians, even to non-jazz fans, Miles Davis was at the forefront of many genres of jazz, even some aspects of free jazz, though he didn't like that particular genre. He would still get rather experimental from time to time, though, and worked with many Avant-Garde musicians.
