Did You Know?
Miles (Miles Davis
) influenced my musical development in ways I couldn't even begin to explain. Can you imagine a young painter studying with Picasso (Pablo Picasso
)? But he got flak for me being in his band. His response was, "Well, find me a nigger who plays like John and I'll hire him."
Collaborated with Jazz Virtuoso Miles Davis on jazz recordings, 'In A Silent Way' (1969) and 'Bitches Brew' (1970).
