It's clear that you haven't listened to Miles, he had some pretty clear
limitations on his instrument. It was the way he worked around them that
gave his music its depth, unlike, say, Maynard Ferguson or Wynton Marsalis.

"...there will come a day when you won't have to use
gasoline. You'd simply take a cassette and put it in
your car, let it run. You'd have to have the proper
type of music. Like you take two sticks, put 'em
together, make fire. You take some notes and rub 'em
together - dum, dum, dum, dum - fire, cosmic fire."
