Miles Davis – Bitches Brew

I’ve wanted to shoot this for several years.

Thing is, it’s in Kensington Market on one of the main streets, and a slew of humanity is constantly walking by. The vehicular traffic is also a deterrent.

Today, a winter’s Monday was my opportunity.

It’s…. like… so cool!

There’s little else, no single. It’s the album or this unofficial bit.

I found this segment from the documentary about him quite interesting.

    1. It is in Kensington Market. I went there today because I know artists love to paint there.
      I found LOTS of art. I thought of you. I saw 2 artists spraying writing. I thought that would be a FAB background for a Boogapony performance. Adding Graf Writing to the post. It’s got to be FAB!

    It’s all really bitchin’, Resa. The music is great, the documentary is interesting, and the mural is amazing. They needed advisement on using “Bitches” in the title. How funny.

        I remember when my brother brought home George Carlin’s album with “The Seven Words You Can’t Say on TV.” I was in my early teens and I was like but you can say them on a record? I was a bit shocked, but I thought George Carlin was hilarious.

                Do you remember Flip Wilson? He’s another comedian I grew up listening to. I thought he was brilliant, and a bit on the baudy side as well.

                    I also grew up on Johnny Carson. When I was 8 years old I had a very rare condition in my knees. I couldn’t walk for a year and had a lot of pain, which made it hard to sleep. It took the doctors a year to figure out what the problem was, I had surgery, then straight casts on both legs for 3 months, then a year of rehab. I was allowed to watch Johnny Carson since I couldn’t sleep well. The show ran from 11pm to 2am in 1967 – 1969 while I was going through all the knee stuff. Between Johnny Carson and Flip Wilson, I think I ended up kind of warped.

                    1. I can see that! Lol! Johnny Carson was a great late night show, but I never got to watch it until I left home.
                      Although you got to watch JC & FW, it crazy what you went through. I am glad you recovered from that rare condition! 👍

                      Today, all that time in the hospital, in casts and rehab, would be done arthroscopically as outpatient surgery.

                      Are you familiar with the Icelandic author Arnaldur Indridason? The first book in his Inspector Erlander series title is translated as “Jar City” for all the jars of pickled specimens that were kept at the university. I loved the book and it reminded me of a time a year or so after my knee surgery I was walking through the pathology lab with my dad who worked at the hospital. The pathologist asked me if I wanted to see the linings of my knees that had be removed during the surgery. I said heck yes. We went into a room filled with specimen jars, a jar city, and he took down two jars that had the red, swollen linings form my knees. They kind of looked like intestines, it was weird. When I got to the part in the book were he was explaining Jar City that day I got to see the linings of my knees came back in an OMG moment.

                    4. I’m not familiar with that author.
                      What a crazy experience, you had.
                      Yet, very interesting… in a way… as long as I didn’t have to see the jars.

  2. Oh, I’m so glad you found a (human/vehicle free) day to capture that! It’s just perfect and so… Miles! A brilliant artist (CarlosD) and you’ve captured it so well! Wow!

    1. It really is an amazing likeness. Carlos D is brilliant.
      I also like the memorandum. It was 1969, and I can just imagine the kerfuffle it must have created.
      Today, no problemo!
