Universally acclaimed as a musical genius, Miles Davis was one of the most important and influential musicians in the world. Here, Miles speaks out about his extraordinary life.

Miles: The Autobiography, like Miles 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 discusses the women in his life. But above all, Miles talks about music and musicians, including the legends he has played with over the years: Bird, Dizzy, Monk, Trane, Mingus, and many others.

The man who gave us some of the most exciting music of the twentieth century here gives us a compelling and fascinating autobiography, featuring a concise discography and thirty-two pages of photographs.

About the Author:

Miles Davis was a legendary jazz trumpeter and bandleader who shaped the direction of jazz in the mid-twentieth century. He died in 1991.

Review:

Ishmael Reed Superior jazz writing that ranks with that of the best practitioners of the art

Clive Davis President, Arista Records [Miles] was and is the master, and his book is must reading for any student or fan of music.

"The Atlantic" With "Miles, " Davis proves to be his own most perceptive critic.

"Vanity Fair" Scorching

"San Francisco Chronicle" This is not just any book. As with everything else he has done, Davis's work as writer is likely to raise controversy. The book could well be subtitled "Miles Tells All" for this volume is crammed with juicy gossip about most of the key figures in modern jazz.
