“We Want Miles”: Miles Davis vs. Jazz

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (or the Musee Des Beaux-Arts de Montreal) has a wonderful exhibit running through the end of August called“We Want Miles”: Miles Davis vs. Jazz.

The exhibit, which runs From April 30 to August 29, 2010, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is innovating once again with the presentation of the first major North American multimedia retrospective dedicated to jazz legend Miles Davis.

“We Want Miles”: Miles Davis vs. Jazz will combine image and sound
to offer visitors a sensory experience inspired by Miles Davis himself:
“A painting is music you can see, and music is a painting you can hear.”
This exhibition was designed and organized by the Cité de la Musique,
Paris, with the support of Miles Davis Properties, LLC, in collaboration
with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

While I won’t be making the trek from Seattle to Montreal to see the exhibit, the photos alone look beautiful, showing a variety of sides to Miles. One can only assume that combining that with his music and other multimedia should offer a fantastic experience.

  1. Hey Kevin,

    Unrelated to this post, I was interested in having a discussion with you in regards to your idea a year ago, of a national college jazz band competition. I have a prominent jazz musician interested in getting one up and running. Could you drop me an email sometime? Thanks,

    T Stoll
