Description
(American Book Award Winner) "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." Miles Davis holds nothing back in this 1989 autobiography, written with his close friend, poet Quincy Troupe. Davis talks about his battles against drugs and racism and discusses the many women in his life. But foremost, he talks about music and the legendary musicians he has played with over the years: Bird, Dizzy, Monk, Trane, Mingus and many others.

"What gives this book, and the man, their final weight and strength is Davis's driving, almost possessed pursuit of his art. The passion to create is all, and let the world go hang itself."—Daily Mail (London)
