SCDAA Celebrates Black History Month: Miles Davis
We kick off our celebration recognizing world-renowned jazz artist Miles Davis. He struggled with health issues – arthritis, hip-joint problems and pneumonia – but wasn’t diagnosed with sickle cell disease until middle age. He began playing the trumpet at age 13 and at 18 convinced his parents to allow him to move to New York City to study at the prestigious Juilliard School.
It was a ploy so he could jam with the musical masters of his day and join the band of his idol, Charlie Parker. He was soon leading his own projects and bands, solidifying a career that spanned decades. His album “Kind of Blue” is one of the most successful and influential jazz albums in history. He passed away in 1991, but his music lives on. Take some time to listen to his music today and pay tribute to this influential sickle cell warrior.
