DownBeat magazine (est. 1939), the bible of "jazz, blues, and beyond," proudly launches the first book in its DownBeatHall of Fame Series. DownBeathas documented Miles Davis's career like no other journal in the world. From Davis's first DownBeatinterview in 1950 to his death in 1991, the magazine captured each nuance and phase of his career through cover stories, features, news items, and reviews. This book is a long-overdue compilation of everything DownBeatmagazine has written about Miles Davis, a book packed with glimpses into the artist's career as it happened - from the polite young trumpeter making a name for himself, to the bombastic innovator, to the near mythic legend. It's a must-read for anyone interested in perhaps the most enigmatic and enduring star in jazz history.Enright, Ed is the author of 'The Miles Davis Reader: Interviews and Features from Downbeat Magazine', published 2007 under ISBN 9781423430766 and ISBN 142343076X.
