No one claims the title of "cool" better than Miles Dewey Davis III: the composer, trumpeter and international jazz icon best known as Miles Davis.
Though not inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame until 2006, Davis' contributions to jazz and its various sub-genres—jazz-funk, bebop, cool jazz, etc.—made a profound impact on 20th century music, as well as to the betterment of countless music lovers' lives.
This Sunday, May 26, marks the musician's 87th birthday. In honor of this special occasion, Legacy Recordings is featuring Davis as their current "Artist of the Month."
To continue this celebration, one lucky jazz aficionado will win a prize pack containing Kind of Blue 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition; The Complete Bitches Brew Sessions (October 1998): a 4-CD boxed set that won the Grammy for "Best Boxed Recording Package"; Miles Davis Quintet 1965-’68: The Complete Columbia Studio Recordings (February 1998), which is the 6-CD box set that won the Grammy Award for "Best Album Notes"; and Live In Europe 1969.
In addition to all of these Miles records, the winner will receive t-shirts, a resin magnet and a pint glass.
