Informazioni sull'autore (1989)

Jazz trumpeter and composer, Miles Davis was one of the world's finest and most loved musicians and the most consistent jazz trendsetter in that genre's history. Davis rose to prominence in the 1940s as a member of Charlie Parker's band. He formed his own band years later. He introduced audiences around the world to jazz, be-bop, modal playing, free-form explorations, and the use of electronics. During his four-decade career, Davis also incorporated into his music elements of pop, rock, classical, and flamenco. Some of his most acclaimed works include Kind of Blue, Bitches Brew, Miles Ahead, Miles Smiles, Birth of the Cool, and In a Silent Way. The Grammy Award-winning musician died of pneumonia, respiratory failure, and a stroke at the age of 65
