Miles Davis and John Coletrane Miles The Autobiography This book written by Miles Davis is the autobiography tht he wrote a few years before he died In this book I found how he first became interested in jazz It also explains how he became one of the best jazz players of all time Miles was born in Alton Illinois in 1926 and grew up in eastern St Louis He learned how to play trumpet while in high school on the trumpet that his father gave to him for his 13th birthday He was a bog fan of jazz and said that the thing that made up his mind to be a musician was wheh he first heard Billy Eckstines band with Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet and Charlie parker playing the sax He then moved to New York looking for Charlie Parker and to study classical trumpet at Juilliard School of music Aftera while parkers drug problem began to take over his life and this also affected Davis Davis took some time toget over that and by the late 50s he was a much bigger star than he had been before due to some of his recent recordings In 1969 Davis started to record more electronic music which was the start of the azz-Rock Later on when he came out with the albums A Tribute to Jack Johnson and On the Corner fans were dissapointed and thought it was a terrible portrayal of the jazz they knew Miles then sort of dissapeared from the view of the public eye between 1975 and 1981 but even when he came back he wasnt as into playing anymore as he had used to be He played again a couple times before he died in 1991 at 65 years old As for the authors description of the book it was all first person because he wrote the book himself with the help of Quincy Troupe My conclusion
