In this "A List" discussion, Don Cheadle sits down with The Black List's Franklin Leonard to talk about his favorite jazz solos of all time. From Miles Davis' "Summertime" to Jaco Pastorius' "Portraits of Tracy," the actor breaks down what those solos meant to him and how it influenced his life and career. Don also opens up about choosing acting over music, almost getting his own "Fresh Prince" spin-off and what he hopes to see for his future.

SAG-AFTRA members are currently on strike; as part of the strike, union actors are not promoting their film and TV projects. This interview was conducted prior to the strike.
