Not only Miles but Coltrane and especially Charlie Parker.
Conversely, Parker was said to have been a fan of country and western. I could see how he could appreciate Madame Patsy, who phrased quite nicely she did.
Too bad the kids of today don't have bands like the Allmans, jazzier Santana, jazzier Doors, old YES and ELP, to help them get interested in jazz. When I was a kid, Santana remade AC Jobim's "Stoneflower" and Miles' "In a Silent Way". Brian Auger's Oblivion Express was playing Wes' "Bumpin' on Sunset" and Les McCann's "Real Compared to What".
Nope, 23 years of M(egaDeath)TV killed off any intelligence rock might have had.
