Monster, J&R Celebrate Miles Davis' Birthday
Monster has teamed up with J&R Electronics and Miles Davis' family to celebrate the late jazz legend's 85th birthday.
A celebration was held Thursday at J&R in New York. Davis' son Erin Davis, daughter Cheryl Davis and nephew Vince Wilburn, Jr. and several musicians who played alongside him were scheduled to attend the event, which was followed by a private celebration.
"Our celebration on May 26th will kick off a year-long Monster celebration of Miles Davis' life and achievements, and Monster is privileged to be working with the Miles Davis family and J&R Electronics for such an important 'milestone,'" Head Monster Noel Lee said in a statement. "From his uniquely personal music to his style, attitude and artistic integrity, Miles' contributions literally cannot be understated. It's especially fitting that we are holding the celebration at J&R, which has a longtime connection to the jazz community."
