This looks like after his exile, maybe around 1980...

He reminds me of Mars Blackmon in this picture. Mainly, it's the huge glasses.

This would have been around 1973-75, at the peak of his cosmic, Electric Period. I'm a great fan of that era, as Miles just pushed himself beyond his limits in pursuit of his art. The music of that era - On the Corner, Get on With It, Dark Magus, Agharta, Pangaea - are still ahead of our time. He was reaching deep into the collective unconscious and not giving a damn who understood.
