Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"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.

Synopsis

A frank autobiography of the jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. This book records his life - the music, the women and the drugs. It talks about the white promotors and producers who exploited black musicians as well as the critics.

Format: Taschenbuch
In Miles Davis' autobiography Miles tells everything in an open and honest manner, maybe to some degree too open and honest, some of his information in this book makes other musicians look bad. He talks openly about which guys did heroin, and who he had aruguments with and much, much more. What is even better is that Miles speaks candidly about his own problems in life, he covers his coke addiction (which was one of the reasons he retired for about 6 years), his heroin addiction, his sex life, ect. Miles also openly displays his opinions about everything, reading this book makes me feel like I've had a deep conversation with Miles. His writing is vulgar (this book has about a million cuss words), which adds to the feeling that he's telling his life story naturally without any interference from his editor. In this autobiography Miles Davis' entire life is covered in a well detailed fashion, with many great stories thrown in for entertainment. This is the best autobiography I've read, and I throughly recommend it to all Miles Davis fans.

Format: Taschenbuch
This is a powerful book. The way in which Miles conveys his message to the reader is so gripping that you can't help but be enthralled. There is so much to absorb that it will definitely leave you satisfied. What I liked the most about this book is how he described his relationships with the other prominent jazz musicians of the 40s and 50s. His insights gave me a much clearer sense of jazz history, and it also gave me some interesting background information I could keep in mind as I listen to the old CDs. (The pictures are an added bonus.)
Although I think this is an excellent book, I must say it is not without its flaws. I think the first two-thirds of the book (the first 13 chapters, which cover the period between his birth and the late 60s--when he became electric/funk oriented) are MUCH more engaging than the final seven chapters, which cover everything up to the present. His vulgar, yet powerful tone remains consistent throughout the book, but he starts talking more about drugs and his problems with with women while he only glosses over what he was doing musically.
And when he starts talking about the musicians in his later bands, he often only presents a laundry list of names without really going into any detail about their character or any experiences he's shared with them (like he did with those in the first half of the book). This can bog the reader down because it makes it difficult to identify with what's going on. He just says "I liked what so-and-so was playing" or something like that, and that can get repetitive.
Also, the way he ends the later chapters doesn't really grip the reader and compel him to read further like the way he ended the earlier chapters.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Donny Thompson am 6. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a gospel for all true jazz lovers. Miles tells all about the jazz scene in such a vivid manner, that you will feel like he is talking directly to you. you will laugh, you will cry, you will learn about all the heavy hitters of the 30s, 40s,50s, 60s,and beyond. miles was so on the money on a lot of issues and he didnt pull any punches when he talked about his own much publicized short comings. He will tell you about every band,every recording session and what impact that it had on his life at that time. Every musician that he ever played with is included in this book. This is a great biography. You will truly understand what a powerful musician miles really was, and the great impact that this trumpet giant made on the music world. This book is a must read for all true jazz lovers.

Format: Taschenbuch
Miles Davis, III, with all of his faults, flaws and laughable quirks, was still one of the most important musicians of the twentieth century. It takes a book like this where he leaves no stone unturned to make clear the debt we all owe him and his contemporaries, as well as give due praise to the restless spirit that lead him beyond what he helped to establish as modern jazz. In so any ways in this autobiography he ironically comes across as both the archetypal and sterotypical artist simultaneously. His telling of the profound friendships he had with Max Roach and Coltrane, his deep awe and respect but dispassionate eye for both the genius and addictions of Charlie Parker, the many loves of his life- and what he put them through- and his brutal, courageous honesty in general, gives us a gift of his haunting humanity.
But above all, this about the music. His own telling of his style, the true creators of the form in total and the actual environment where it was produced, and how he created so many styles of his own is enough to make this book worth having.
You will never find another human being who can make curse words sound so beautiful!
If there is anything I would say that would prevent this book from geting five stars, it would probably be the existence of a book called MILESTONES; a supposedly even harder edged and more deeply researched biography of Miles. The author of MILESTONES swears that it was only one of Miles' less important and actually less interesting alter-egos ("Freaky Deaky") that was channeled by him to the poet/writer who helped prepare this autobiography- with the original jazz composiitonal ideas clearly elucidated actually coming from this writer's book.
