CFF: Miles Davis - Birth of Cool

15

Last shown on 18 October 2019

Miles Davis: horn player, bandleader, innovator. Elegant, intellectual, the very embodiment of cool. The man with a sound so beautiful it could break your heart. His restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms made him a star. But it also made him incredibly difficult to live with, for the people who loved him most. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage, studio outtakes, and rare photos, Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool tells the story of a truly singular talent and unpacks the man behind the horn.
