Well, this sounds rad: On Miles Davis' birthday, May 26, Diverse's Hermon Mehari -- who's been an integral part of lots of awesome jazz and hip-hop tributes in this city in the last year, including the 18th and Vine tribute to A Tribe Called Quest -- is putting together a jazz show devoted to the legend.
