Sometimes it Takes a Long Time

"Man, sometimes it takes you a long time to sound like yourself."
- Miles Davis

I like to imagine that this quote actually came from Miles Davis working with some rookie musician who kept trying to imitate his sound instead of owning their own.

But more than that, I love to see him sharing the struggle to find his voice. Sometimes it takes a long time! And in the meantime, I guess you just gotta try some things out.
