If Miles Davis were alive today, what would be his go-to reaction GIF? These are the kinds of thoughts that occur to us on what would have been the Prince of Darkness's 91st. Assuming he kept up with the latest in digital communication, maybe he'd go for something universal like Grumpy Cat, or Jjjjjohn's skeleton GIFs for every occasion. A Davis biopic starring Michael K. Williams is in development, but in case it doesn't answer this vital line of inquiry, we're speculating for you.

If Miles Davis decided to create a freestyle jazz session in GIF form, here's what that might look like in the work of Max Litvinov, ELMØ, Will Herring, and more.
