    One thought on “Milestones: The Music And Times Of Miles Davis”

    1. I find that most biographies of musical greats tend to be obsequious love odes devoid of a true picturet as bad as the self serving bios, for the most part, but approaching that shade.Chambers work on the great Miles Davis isn t one of those This is a biography, not a review of his musical work, not a critique of his discography or concerts, but an honest history of Miles Davis life If you want to know about the booze and heroin soaked bebop years in mid town Manhattan or the freaky deaky years [...]

    2. Ultimately, this book kind of pissed me off It s certainly thorough, so there s that But the writing is really dull Chambers goes into excessive detail of every recording session ever, yet never manages to capture who Davis WAS It s a lot of facts, and in many cases those facts are interesting, but you need to make a compelling story You need a PERSON at the center, and Miles never quite shows up in this book.Another major problem is the way Chambers, though he tries hard to write in a flat, ob [...]

    3. This exhaustive text is the definitive overview of Davis s music and his relationship to other musicians It is an invaluable companion to the music itself As a standard biography, however, it fails miserably, probably because the author had no intention of reviewing the basic biographical details of Davis s life The book s subtitle is apt it is about the music and the times but not really the life per se If you want a biography, look elsewhere If you want a thoughtful, sensitive sense of Davis s [...]

    4. Milestones I II is the first bio I read of Miles, and I liked it a lot It was detailed, accurate, exhaustive It was about his life than his music see Ian Carr s for concentration on the music but it was thorough and well written, easy to read.

    5. Comprehensive overview of the life and music of Miles Dewey Davis.Miles complained about people who were not there thinking they knew, but that doesn t stop this work from being totally engrossing a nerds delight.

    6. Chambers does a very thorough job of detailing Miles career and making it feel present and real I highly recommend this book to any fan of Miles Davis.
