    I find that most biographies of musical greats tend to be obsequious love odes devoid of a true picturenot as bad as the self serving bios, for the most part, but approaching that shade.Chambers work on the great Miles Davis isn t one of those This is a biography, not a review of his musical work, not a critique of his discography or concerts, but an honest history of Miles Davis life If you want to know about the booze and heroin soaked bebop years in mid town Manhattan or the freaky de I find that most biographies of musical greats tend to be obsequious love odes devoid of a true picturenot as bad as the self serving bios, for the most part, but approaching that shade.Chambers work on the great Miles Davis isn t one of those This is a biography, not a review of his musical work, not a critique of his discography or concerts, but an honest history of Miles Davis life If you want to know about the booze and heroin soaked bebop years in mid town Manhattan or the freaky deaky years that were his last decade, here s the story Don t get me wrong I LOVE Miles and delighted in his masterwork and take no delight in the gory details that comprise his rough background But I was glad to get the real story and Chambers works hard to not only document the story but reach behind the borrowing of ideas and other aspects of Miles music that is both storied and revered

    Ultimately, this book kind of pissed me off It s certainly thorough, so there s that But the writing is really dull Chambers goes into excessive detail of every recording session ever, yet never manages to capture who Davis WAS It s a lot of facts, and in many cases those facts are interesting, but you needto make a compelling story You need a PERSON at the center, and Miles never quite shows up in this book.Another major problem is the way Chambers, though he tries hard to write in a Ultimately, this book kind of pissed me off It s certainly thorough, so there s that But the writing is really dull Chambers goes into excessive detail of every recording session ever, yet never manages to capture who Davis WAS It s a lot of facts, and in many cases those facts are interesting, but you needto make a compelling story You need a PERSON at the center, and Miles never quite shows up in this book.Another major problem is the way Chambers, though he tries hard to write in a flat, objective style, trashes the music he doesn t personally like So Miles s output from 72 to 75 is described objectively, yet Chambers makes sure we know how worthless it all was.Which is the standard opinion of the times among the jazz mafia, of whom Chambers is obviously one That is, people who know what jazz is, and who were somehow deeply wounded by Miles playing something else in the 70s These people are all the same and it s tiresome to hear their idiot opinions over and over again He sold out they say of the insane, unique, wild music that didn t sell, and that critics despised I think they re a bit unclear on the concept.Maybe they just couldn t help themselves The book was written in 83, and it wasn t until the 90s that Miles s 70s music was finally seen for what it is fucking genius Like he traveled to the future and brought back the electronic sounds of the 90s and 00s and recreated it with musicians in the 70s.So, yeah The book was informative enough to keep me going, but to hell with Chambers and his jazz elitism Music is music, and Miles was a genius

    This exhaustive text is the definitive overview of Davis s music and his relationship to other musicians It is an invaluable companion to the music itself As a standard biography, however, it fails miserably, probably because the author had no intention of reviewing the basic biographical details of Davis s life The book s subtitle is apt it is about the music and the times but not really the life per se If you want a biography, look elsewhere If you want a thoughtful, sensitive sens This exhaustive text is the definitive overview of Davis s music and his relationship to other musicians It is an invaluable companion to the music itself As a standard biography, however, it fails miserably, probably because the author had no intention of reviewing the basic biographical details of Davis s life The book s subtitle is apt it is about the music and the times but not really the life per se If you want a biography, look elsewhere If you want a thoughtful, sensitive sense of Davis s music evolution and devolution , this is the one book you need

    Comprehensive overview of the life and music of Miles Dewey Davis.Miles complained about people who were not there thinking they knew, but that doesn t stop this work from being totally engrossing a nerds delight.

    Flawed, but deeply engaging bio that deals substantively with Miles creative output.

    Chambers does a very thorough job of detailing Miles career and making it feel present and real I highly recommend this book to any fan of Miles Davis.
