Miles Davis - A Great Life

This afternoon on Radio 4 at 4:30 Great Lives debates/celebrates the life of iconic trumpeter Miles Davis. In the long-running series talking heads make the case for the subject in question. Today’s guest Adrian Uttley of Radiohead states the case for Miles Davis’ life being a ‘great life’ and author and jazz fan Richard Williams (The Blue Moment: Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue and the Remaking of Modern Music) joins him to discuss the American’s career. The half-hour programme can be heard again on Friday evening at 11:00pm.

Minor correction. Adrian Uttley is in Portishead not Radiohead.

Plus, it's Utley - with one 't' ....... he has a fantastic collection of vintage synths too - I've just been watching a fascinating interview with him and his machines on YT.

Thanks Bruce, Patti. It's good to know someone reads this stuff!
