Miles Davis: Miles, The Autobiography

Lloyd Bradley, Q, February 1990

THE PERFECT BIOGRAPHY, operating on three levels: an insight into Davis's often abrasive personality; an on-the-spot commentary on the evolution of jazz as a music over the last 40 years; and a blow-by-blow account (sometimes literally) of the sheer madness involved in being in the music's big league during that time.
