Miles to Go
Fancy some jazz?
From 1920s bebop to the invention of '60s freestyle, Miles Davis was no one-note wonder. The legendary trumpeter is celebrated at the new exhibit We Want Miles, a multi-media show that features listening booths and free jazz concerts highlighting the man’s musical genius.
Besides making iconic records, he inspired creations by Jean-Michel Basquiat (three of his paintings are on display here) and photographers like Irving Penn and Anton Corbijn.
Trust us cats, you’ll blow your top.
