On the Corner by Miles Davis (Writing Music)

Here's something raw and funky that got airplay almost every morning over the past week. Miles Davis gave me a swift kick in the ass every morning and helped put me in the proper writing mood during the home stretch of a project.

Supposedly, in 1972 Miles Davis was doing a ton of blow during the recording of the album, On the Corner. I mean, a shit-ton. He had kicked heroin many years before but he needed something to help him self-medicate after fracturing two ankles in a nasty car accident.

I'm trying to migrate this "Writing Music" series from Tumblr over here. Let's see how long that impulse lasts before I get bored with it.
