Revisiting Miles

I am working on a due-over project for my class on professional design practices. After showing my portfolio, my professor suggested that I rework Sketches of Miles. I was not thrilled about the idea at first, but now I am loving it. I am not just redoing it, but make an extension of it. I’ll share the project once I am done, but working on it gives me the reason to re-listen to Miles. I also reread Greg Tate’s essays on electric Miles. That man is simply a brilliant critic. I am rereading Richard Cook’s It’s About That Time: Miles Davis On and Off Record. I am also intending to reread a few books on Miles when I get a chance. What can I say? I am officially a Miles freak who can’t get enough of Miles’ Voodoo.
