MILES DAVIS: BIRTH OF THE COOL

MILES DAVIS: BIRTH OF THE COOL

Stanley Nelson · United States · 2019 · 115 mins · Not Rated
IMDbRotten Tomatoes
 With his singular talent, vision and sense of style, the inestimable trumpeter would define an entire idiom. But Miles Davis’ life was about more than merely jazz, and jazz is hardly just music. Jazz is the black experience in America made audible. Director Stanley Nelson has created an utterly essential portrait of one of the great American artistic figures of the 20th century. Actor Carl Lumbly reads voice-over from Davis’ salty 1989 autobiography in the familiar gravel rasp, while a thousand still photos mingle with breathtaking, landmark musical performances by Davis and associates such as Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and others who, hand in hand with Davis, reshaped the sound of modern jazz.—The San Francisco Chronicle
“You'll want to listen to Miles' music after watching the film and, when you do, you might feel it a little deeper.” Los Angeles Times
“A tantalizing portrait: rich, probing, mournful, romantic, triumphant, tragic, exhilarating, and blisteringly honest.” Variety
Cast Ron Carter, Jimmy Cobb, Stanley Crouch
