Miles Davis is certainly one of the most recognizable musicians that jazz/fusion has ever known, and his trumpet style and sound is unique. You can now recreate and get close that sound, just identify and set the key parameters on the SWAM Brass interface, then add your own personal taste.

In the Play Modes the Pipe Gesture recommended is the Half Valve Transition: that is very important to manage the legato sounds; and of course in the Mutes you have to select the Harmon Mute. So, on the Expressivity Section, set the Mute Control to 0.  with this setting, the mute will be very close to the bell of the instrument.

On the Timbre section, the Breath Noise and Dirtiness are recommended to be set to  high values, to get a club dirty sound and finally experiment moving around the mute size to find the sound that is closer to your taste and references.
