A Letter from Chick Corea to Miles Davis!

Hey folks…our old friend and MOJA Radio contributor, Scott Thompson, who just happens to be the assistant director of public relations at Jazz @ Lincoln Center, sent me the letter you’ll see below that Chick Corea sent him after Miles passed away in 1991. Here’s what Scott told me about this letter…

“That letter came after I interviewed Chick the day Miles died.  I was the one to tell him.  Heavy.  –ST”

Scott has contributed some great content to MOJA Radio including interviews he did in the past with Frank Zappa and John McLaughlin.  We thank him for sharing this with us too, especially with Miles turning 85 on Thursday, 26 May 2011, and Chick turning 70 on 12 June 2011. 

So read on and enjoy, and THANKS AGAIN SCOTT!!!
