Professional bass player Miles Davis made the news on WHYY when he got together with his colleagues to sight-read chamber music right outside his front door in downtown Philadelphia. So far they have played pieces such as Barber's Adagio for Strings, a Brahms sextet, and a Schubert octet, following social distancing guidelines. In this interview, Miles talks about how these spontaneous chamber music sessions came to be, his visits to Pittsburgh when he was younger, and how he wound up with the same name as trumpet player Miles Davis.
