Trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas has written a very thoughtful post about the Miles Davis Cellar Door 1970 boxed set on the Greenleaf Music Blog: "I have often thought that Miles created the ultimate artistic illusion: he played so much music on trumpet that he fooled people into believing he couldn't play the instrument. There was so much music happening they couldn't hear the trumpet playing. To me that's one of his great contributions to the modern language of the trumpet: that it is primarily a MUSICAL instrument."
