Miles Davis Getting His Own Stamp

    Miles Davis, aka one of the coolest jazz cats of all time, is about to be immortalized through another means. The U.S. Postal Service is issuing a stamp honoring the legendary trumpet player/composer/band leader sometime this year. It’s all part of a musically themed series that will also feature stamps dedicated to French singer Edith Piaf. Fittingly, the French Postal Service will run these pieces of postage, too, and we’ve heard that Davis’ stamp will resemble the Jack Johnson cover. [RS]
