Description
Steering clear of the Davis mystique and focusing on the music, Philip Freeman reassesses Miles Davis's "electric period" and analyzes its continuing influence on contemporary music. While jazz purists often revile this phase, which encompasses the entire second half of his career from 1967 until his death in 1991, this book takes a new, appreciative look at this music and shows its importance to Davis's career and to jazz as a whole. The author also reveals surprising connections between Davis, Jimi Hendrix, and Sly Stone, particularly the ways they fed each other's creativity.
