Exceptionally brilliant jazz trumpeter who broke free of musical rules, and is commonly considered to be one of the coolest historical figures in America.
He was taught to play without vibrato, which was in style at the time.
His most famous musical album is Kind of Blue, which was released in 1959 by Columbia Records.
He got married to Frances Davis in 1958, then to Betty Mabry on September 30, 1968, and then to Cicely Tyson on November 26, 1981.
He is major contributor to jazz music, just like Ella Fitzgerald.
