The Gospel According to Miles

Anthony Dean-Harris
Editor-In-Chief / @retronius

Originally published in Reflections Magazine, an [African-American Reflections] publication.

I have been blessed to write about what I have called time and again “my first love after Jesus.” I find it to be a rather thrilling task to undertake, but it comes with a certain challenge. In essence, I’m speaking about an art form that many consider dead. There are those who when talk of jazz comes up, thoughts go to Nat King Cole or Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. Few think about the players today like Vijay Iyer or Brad Mehldau, Gretchen Parlato or Esperanza Spalding. Jazz is a form that continually grows, advances, and adapts to the times but what it doesn’t seem to do is let enough people know about those changes.
