The Miles Davis Companion: Four Decades of Commentary
The Miles Davis Companion profiles the life and career of jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. From '50s "cool" jazz to '70s jazz-rock fusion to '90s hip-hop, Davis was an innovative musician who always created new sounds and styles. Throughout his career, Davis attacked stereo-types and refused to kowtow to the musical (or popular) press. The Companion draws on profiles, interviews, liner notes, and original reviews of recordings to give a full picture of his work. It also includes essays on the impact of Davis's life and music, his controversial stance toward women and other musicians, and his transformation from jazz musician to cultural icon.
