Montblanc Great Characters Special Edition Miles Davis Fountain Pen Fine F Nib
Born in 1926 in Illinois, Miles Davis was one of the world's most innovative jazz musicians. Each time he reinvented himself, the international jazz scene followed his lead into new and exciting musical territory. Driven by a strong artistic vision, he lived without compromise. He was called the Master of Styles, Prince of Darkness, King of Cool - all titles evoking mystery and power. A quarter of a century after his death in 1991, he remains one of the greatest figures in jazz history.
This Great Characters Edition is honoring one of the most revolutionary and influential jazz musicians of all time. He was not only a trumpeter with an outstanding sound but a pioneer in virtually every phase of the evolution of post-WWII American jazz, from cool jazz up to the rock-jazz-funk fusion, which finally got him inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The overall shape of the writing instrument is inspired by the trumpet, emphasized through the trumpet finger buttons on the clip, while the blue cone recalls "Kind of Blue", one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. The pattern on the cap and barrel highlights the diverse movements Miles Davis represents: Jazz Fusion (Mixed shapes and techniques), Modal Jazz (Oriental), Hard Bop (African), Cool Jazz (Nonette) and Bebop. The cap ring with "2006" engraving evokes his induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, while the shape of the cone stems from the special "Heim" mouthpiece he used for playing.
