Miles Davis Podcast: Steve Kuhn
I first met and interviewed the great pianist Steve Kuhn when I was producing The Traneumentary podcast series in 2007. And while we were talking about John Coltrane, Steve kept referencing the first great Miles Davis Quintet that featured Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. It seemed that group, and Miles specifically, shaped a lot of Steve’s musical world as a young guy. So when it came time to discuss Miles’ first great quintet, I immediately called Steve remembering how passionate he was on the subject. As you will hear below, Steve breaks down what made Miles and this group so special.
The Miles Davis Podcast Series features a cast of world class musicians sharing their passion for the music of Miles Davis. A collaborative project of Legacy Recordings, Concord Music Group, Verve Records & Rhino, the series is produced by Vella Interactive.
