A sublime and unforgettable trumpeter, Miles Davis had placed his name among the
great legends of jazz before he’d even turned 25. Ever in quest of innovation
and constantly seeking a new approach to the music, he brought jazz to a larger
audience, thereby ensuring its constant renewal.
An insatiable creative force, the “Picasso of jazz” drew and painted
with the same spontaneity, improvisation and sensibility we experienced whenever
he lifted his trumpet to his lips. His visual works, like his music, are richly
original and imaginative.
On the occasion of the 31st edition of the Festival International de
Jazz de Montréal, the estate of the famed musician allowed us the honour
of creating a silkscreen from one of his works of art. Chariot of Gods
is available for purchase at the Galerie Lounge TD.
