Miles Davis, by de Koenigswarter
Pannonica de Koenigswarter, the muse and patron of the American jazz world (as seen in the rare documentary I posted earlier) was an enthusiastic amateur photographer, evidenced in an enthralling collection of candid Polaroid snapshots.
She also collected wishes. Over the course of a decade, Koenigswarter asked three hundred musicians what their three wishes in life were, jotting them all down in a notebook.
The three wishes of Miles Davis:1. ‘To be white!’
And that was it.

The three wishes of Julian ‘Cannonball’ Adderley:1. ‘I wish that racial discrimination would be eliminated from the face of the earth, in all directions.’2. ‘I wish for some sort of subsidy for the jazz art, so that those truly dedicated artists may create music, let’s say, unscathed or distorted because of social and economic necessity. Only under these circumstances may there exist jazz expression free from bitterness, jealousy, grief, and the put-down syndrome.’3. ‘I must honestly confess that I would wish for certain various and sundry circumstances indigenous to a healthy and happy home life for my wife and myself.’ 
P.S. My posts are few and far between due to major renovation of my house. Things will be more varied shortly!
