We found this floating around social media earlier this week and thought it was worth a repost. It’s a memo sent to executives at Columbia Records, a subsidiary of CBS, by Miles Davis’ record producer, Teo Macero, in 1969. Despite the concerns, the album was released, name unchanged, and today is considered one of Davis’ greatest recorded works. The record went on to win a Grammy for “Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album” in 1971.
