Deeper Into Miles Davis
Paul Tingen, author of the thoroughly engaging and perceptive Miles Beyond: The Electric Explorations of Miles Davis 1967-1991, has graciously linked to my review of the late, great trumpeter's The Complete On The Corner Sessions boxed set on his website.
I'm currently reading Miles Beyond (thanks, Nick) and, even though I've read the musical legend's autobiography, I'm learning a helluva lot more about Miles, his recording processes and his huge and hugely talented, rotating cast of band mates than I thought was possible. Anyone interested in Miles and the vast amount of innovative and controversial music he created in his final quarter century should read Tingen's tome. By no means a Davis cheerleader, Tingen is rather a tough yet fair scrutinizer of the man's work and ideas.
