Miles Davis honoured with US postage stamp

Rolling Stone reports that more than 20 years after his death, jazz legend Miles Davis is being honoured by the U.S. Postal Service with his own stamp.

Later this year, the trumpeter will be immortalised in a collection of musically-themed stamps that will also honour the singer Edith Piaf. They will be released in partnership with the French postal service, La Poste.

Miles Davis, one of the most innovative figures in bebop and jazz fusion, died in 1991 at the age 65. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. His classic album ‘Kind Of Blue’ was listed as the 12th in Rolling Stone’s 500 most important albums. If you are not convinced play the clip above…..
