Miles Davis inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Now, I have a reason to go visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Miles Davis (trumpet, keyboards; born May 26, 1926, died September 28, 1991)

Miles Davis is one of the key figures in the history of jazz, and his place in vanguard of that pantheon is secure. His induction as a performer into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a subtler and less obvious matter. Davis never played rock or rhythm & blues, though he experimented with funk grooves on 1972’s On the Corner and in some of his later bands. However, his work intrigued a sizable segment of rock’s more ambitious fans in a way that no other serious jazz figure had ever done - and not retroactively but while he was alive and making some of his most challenging music. In particular, the boldly experimental soundscapes of Davis’ 1969 album Bitches Brew spoke to the sensibilities of rock fans who’d been digesting the Grateful Dead’s expansive improvisations. Davis’ was acutely attuned to his environment and he once remarked, “We play what the day recommends.”

ETTA JAMES RETURNS WITH NEW ALBUM: Soul star also to receive NABOB Lifetime Achievement Award in D.C


*The legendary Etta James is back looking slim and trim and toting a brand new album of songs made famous by the likes of Marvin Gaye (“What’s Going On”), Prince (“Purple Rain”) and R. Kelly (“I Believe I Can Fly”).

“All the Way,” due March 14 via RCA Victor, is described by James as “an album of songs that I’ve always loved, tunes that I heard and thought, ‘wish I could have been the one to do that one first.”

During the month of its release, Etta will also be honored by NABOB (The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters) with the organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award at its 22nd Annual Communications Awards Dinner, a staple event held each year in Washington, D.C. Hosted by comedian and radio personality Steve Harvey, the show will take place March 10 and include other NABOB 2006 honorees Alicia Keys, S. Epatha Merkerson, Maya Angelou, Albertina Walker and Robert L. Johnson - with Aretha Franklin providing the evening’s entertainment.
