Episode 26: The Vince Wilburn Conversation
Vince Wilburn joins the show this week. Mowo! sits down with Vince and talks about growing up in Chicago around one of the richest most creative music scenes in the history of American music. Vince is the nephew of music Legend Miles Davis. He toured and played with his uncle for years following in the footsteps of legends (major shout out to Al Foster!! ) .That experience in and of itself is worth the listen. Nothing is funnier than the thought of Miles Davis sitting in his room after a show and listening to the board tapes of that nights show and breaking walkman headphones wondering whether or not he was gonna buy the band dinner that night based on their performance. ( apparently Miles constantly broke Walkman headphones ). Vince talks about growing up and being mentored by Freddie White. ( Look up Freddie White. Brother of Verdine and Maurice White of Earth Wind and Fire and a major major musician ). Chicago was Earth Wind and Fire , Ramsey Lewis , Chess Records, Eddie Harris , The Blues ……..REAL MUSIC and history….period. The conversation touches on many different topics. It should be noted that Vince (along with his cousins Erin Davis and Cheryl Davis) runs the Miles Davis Estate. A huge responsibility that he takes on with love and respect for the legacy of his family. We love Vince and we hope you do to!
