Miles Davis: Birth Of The Cool

Miles Davis: Birth Of The Cool
Stanley Nelson / 2019, USA, 115 min

A foray into the life and career of musical and cultural icon Miles Davis.

Using words from Miles Davis’ autobiography, this film offers an incisive insight into our understanding of the legendary musician. Newly released archival material, alongside interviews with pre-eminent historians and personal friends like Quincy Jones, illustrate a man of intensity and devotion to his craft. Despite the indignities of America during the time of segregation, nothing was going to stop Davis from realising his dream: to create a new form of musical expression. Davis worked like a physicist with his collaborators to push musical experimentation and widen the tones and lyricism of jazz – the effects of which are felt to this day.
