Miles Davis was probably the greatest lover I ever had.

Certainly the most considerate.

Great with his tongue.

Ummm..... I think so, but John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk are certainly up there too in my opinion.

Kind of Blue is one of my favorite albums ever. It's flawless.

Miles Davis is great, One of the few artists I can put on at a party and guarantee no complaints.

Nah, he's not the greatest IMO.

I prefer Thelonious Monk, Coltrane and Mingus.

There's no one better - although there are other who are up there with him. The way he leads his band is awe inspiring - his spontaniousness on the trumpet combined with his ability to take the rest of band with him on that ride is what made recordings like Bitches Brew possible and why so many of his recordings sound like timeless compositions rather than improvisations.

I'd agree that Thelonious Monk and others are up there with Davis - Coltrane is borderline for me - his best work was while he was in Davis's band. Mingus is just not in the same league for me. Mingus is similar in stature to artists like Chick Corea, Stan Getz and Herbie Han****. They have made many Jazz classics. But to think about it in different terms, if Mingus is U2, then Coltrane is the Rolling Stones. But Davis, he's Rock and Roll.
