Miles Davis’ family members including Erin Davis and Vince Wilburn Jr., who has both toured and recorded with Miles, and former band members including Joey DeFrancesco, Lenny White, John Beasley, and others will serve as Guest DJs with a discography of over 100 titles to choose from – including The Birth of the Cool, the million-seller Bitches Brew and the biggest-selling jazz album of all time, Kind of Blue.
The channel will also feature guest appearances and contributions from musicians and admirers including jazz hip hopper Robert Glasper, trumpeter Chris Botti; producer, bassist, and former band member Marcus Miller; and actor Don Cheadle, who played Davis in the 2015 biopic Miles Ahead.
