    1 John Coltrane Quartet, The Complete 1962 Copenhagen Concert (Domino Jazz) Coltrane is my inspiration. He just got better and better in the 1960s the more he played, maybe because he kicked heroin in the late ’50s. To me he remains a total genius.

    2 Miles Davis, Bitches Brew (Sony Legacy) My father had a copy of Bitches Brew but it went missing, so what a joy to find it remastered (the new Legacy edition also includes a DVD of a previously unreleased 1969 concert in Copenhagen). Miles was so cool—not only his music but his fashion, his attitude, everything, even four decades later.
