Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool — A Complicated Man Chased by Demons —A Brilliant Look at His Life
May 3, 2019
What Davis had, that others made comments upon, even from his earliest days was his “star” quality. That's high praise since he was coming up with other jazz musicians who in turn also became legends yet they didn't possess a mystic around their persona. Not like Davis who simply didn’t give an “F” and because of that his mystique only grew more.  He burned through the ’50s and sauntered through the ’60s using and abusing, drugs and alcohol and building up his mystique which grew darker, and darker. ... read more »
