You’ll always find me near the man with the horn...

You’ll always find me near the man with the hornFind me there from dark until dawnCos that’s a place where music is bornSo fine so sweetly he plays and says it so wellCome latelyYou’ll find that you’re under his spellSo if you’re in the mood for music and loveJust forget the stars up aboveFor my friends you’ll findYou’ll be drawn to the man with the horn. The Man With the Horn by Edgar DeLange, Truman Elliot Jenney, Bonnie Lake

Bitches Brew was a turning point in modern jazz. Davis had already spearheaded two major jazz movements – cool and modal jazz – and was about to initiate another major change (like Davis' album Filles de Kilimanjaro, the album's cover also sports the phrase "Directions In Music By Miles Davis" above the title). Some critics at the time characterized this music as simply obscure and "outside", which recalls Duke Ellington's description of Davis as "the Picasso of jazz."
