by Davis, Miles
copies bought in the last week
Even twenty years after he died, Miles Davis remains a giant of American music, and one of the most famous and talented jazz musicians who ever lived. Miles is his story, honest, unfiltered, and sometimes controversial.
Miles, like the artist himself, holds nothing back. He speaks frankly and openly about his drug problem and how he overcame it. He condemns the racism he encountered in the music business and in American society generally. And he talks about the women in his life. But above all, Miles opines on music and musicians, including the legends he played with over the years: Bird, Dizzy, Monk, Trane, Mingus, and many others.
Called "scorching" by Vanity Fair and "riveting," by Rolling Stone, this is no ordinary memoir.
