Guitarist Pete Cosey, who worked extensively with jazz icon Miles Davis, has died at the age of 68.
He passed away on Wednesday morning (30May12) of unknown causes.
The musician was a session guitarist with Chess Records during the 1960s and played on albums for Etta James, Howlin' Wolf, Rotary Connection and Muddy Waters, among others.
He teamed up with Davis in 1973, performing on four of his most well-known records, Get Up with It, Dark Magus, Agharta and Pangaea.
Following the band's break-up two years later, Cosey struggled to launch a solo career but he did find work with several music greats, including Phil Cohran, Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, and Herbie Hancock.
