MILESTONES: 60th Anniversary of Miles Davis's Someday My Prince Will Come

Miles_SMPWC Cover Art.jpeg

Acclaimed saxophonist, composer, producer, and educator Greg Osby joins host Angélika Beener to discuss Miles Davis’s Someday My Prince Will Come at 60. One of the most originative musicians of his generation, Osby delves into what it means to be an artist in transition, as Miles Davis was in 1961; why Hank Mobley deserves much more love; and how expanding beyond the “Top 5” mentality will make for a better musician and scene, while Angélika speaks on the cultural significance of this now iconic album cover. This and so much more!
