You guessed it – our eighth featured musician for our 10 Great Weeks + 10 Great Musicians + Giveaways Galore offer is the man that gave birth to the very idea of cool…Mr. Miles Davis!

Since you probably already know the amazing deal we’re offering, we’ll spare you all the nitty-gritty details this week. But…if you don’t know about our Giveaways Galore offer, you should definitely check it all out here.

We’ll leave you with the words of Miles, “I’ll play it first and tell you what it is later.”

Miles Davis

Miles Davis in Gleason’s Gym, New York City, 1969

Baron was lucky enough to not only shoot Miles with his better, more glamorous half, but also to follow him to Gleason’s gym, taking a few shots of Miles with his bright red 275 GTB Ferrari along the way. Davis tried to get Wolman into a bit of a workout, but Wolman declined. Read more and see more photos of the day spent with Davis in the book.

Miles and Betty Davis

Miles Davis could be an intimidating subject but Baron and he got along fine. Betty was an outstanding recording artist in her own right – each Davis obviously influenced the other during their brief marriage. Betty was also a model, and Miles was also a visual artist – one if his paintings is the background here. In the book, Baron reveals “like Jerry Garcia, his artwork was later transferred to commercially available neckties.”
