The first ever illustrated history of the world's favourite jazz musician. This is the complete history of Miles Davis, the world's most popular jazz trumpeter, composer, bandleader and musical visionary. Constantly creating, Davis defined and then defied genres from bebop and cool jazz to hard bop and jazz-rock fusion. Davis played with some of the great jazz musicians of the 20th century; legends like Charlie Parker, Dizzie Gillespie and John McLaughlin. But the man who put his name to the world's best-selling jazz album, Kind of Blue, had a volatile character to match his virtuoso performances. Davis' story veers from tempestuous relationships with movie stars to heroin addiction and police busts. With contributions from jazz critics, famous fans and Davis' former bandmates Sonny Rollins and Herbie Hancock, this illustrated history gives the inside track on the great man and his music.
