Montblanc - Montblanc Great Characters Miles Davis Ballpoint
The Montblanc Great Character Miles Davis Edition is honouring one of the most revolutionary and influential jazz musicians of all time – Miles Dewey Davis (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991). He was not only a trumpeter with an outstanding sound but a pioneer in virtually every phase of the evolution of post-WWII American jazz, from cool jazz up to the rock-jazz-funk fusion, which finally got him inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame.
The overall shape of the writing instrument is inspired by the trumpet, emphasized through the trumpet finger buttons on the clip, while the blue cone recalls ‘Kind of blue’, one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. The shape of the cone is inspired by the mouthpiece of the famous trumpet ‘’Gustat’’ Heim 2. The pattern on the cap and barrel highlights the diverse movements Miles Davis represents: Jazz Fusion (Mixed shapes and techniques), Modal Jazz (Oriental), Hard Bop (African), Cool Jazz (Nonette) and Bebop. The cap ring with ‘2006’ engraving evokes his induction to the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 2006’, while the shape of the cone stems from the special ‘Heim’ mouthpiece he used for playing.
With every Great Characters Edition, Montblanc commemorates individuals who have broken new ground in the fields of culture, politics, science or the arts, and the impact of the legacy they have left behind.
