Miles: The Autobiography, like the man himself, holds nothing back. He talks about his battles against drugs and racism, and discusses the many women in his life. But above all, Miles talks about music and musicians, including the legends he has played with over the years: Bird, Dizzy, Monk, Trane, Mingus and many others. The man who has given us the most exciting music of recent times has now given us a fascinating and compelling insight into his extraordinary life.

‘An engrossing read . . . gives fascinating insights into the cult phenomenon’ Miles Copeland, Weekend Telegraph

‘Magnificently truthful, action packed, raw and bleeding’ Miles Kington, Independent

‘Passionate, opinionated, unfettered . . . What gives this book, and the man, their final weight and strength is that Davis’s driving, almost possessed pursuit of his art. The passion to create is all, and let the world go hang itself’ Herbert Kretzmer, Daily Mail

Review:

Ishmael Reed Superior jazz writing that ranks with that of the best practitioners of the art Clive Davis President, Arista Records [Miles] was and is the master, and his book is must reading for any student or fan of music. "The Atlantic" With "Miles, " Davis proves to be his own most perceptive critic. "Vanity Fair" Scorching "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.

Book Description:

‘LISTEN. The greatest feeling I ever had in my life – with my clothes on – was when I first heard Diz and Bird back in 1944. I’ve come close to matching the feeling of that night, but I’ve never quite got there. I’m always looking for it, trying to always feel it in and through the music I play . . .’
