No jazz musician ever came more charismatic than Miles Davis.

With his singular talent, vision and sense of style, the inestimable trumpeter would define an entire idiom. But Miles Davis’ life was about more than merely jazz, and jazz is hardly just music. Jazz is the black experience in America made audible.

For a filmmaker to throw his arms around the sprawling panorama of the life and times of Miles Davis — musical, artistic, personal, social, cultural — in a two-hour documentary ....

This is a better fit for " Songwriting & Composition " forum.

Worthwhile checking out IMO.

" Davis was a restless creative spirit who spent a lifetime on the barricades, pushing at boundaries, tearing down walls, but he supplied few hints about his troubled inner life, which was clearly filled with strife and anger "

If you are a song writer, you will totally get this.

From the trailer & review, this looks like a very interesting doc - thanks for the heads up!
