Miles Davis – Birth of the Cool – musical biographical documentary 2019

Miles – The Genius far miles beyond his era!

Miles Davis: Horn player, bandleader, visionary, and most of all in so many different waves of music he did. Elegant, intellectual, vain. Callous, conflicted, controversial.

Coming to cinemas in Hungary from the end of August, gives an insight into Miles Davis’s life and career, based on his own words and autobiography of the music and pop culture icon. 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. Birth of the Cool lays out the complicated personal history and game changing musical revolutions of the jazz legend, and admirably tries to cover it all into a two-hour documentary. Directed By: Stanley Nelson – Runtime:115 minutes.

The central theme of Miles Davis’s life was his restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms. It made him a star, it also made him incredibly difficult to live with, for the people who loved him most. Again and again, in music and in life, Miles broke with convention and when he thought his work came to represent a new convention, he changed it again. Miles’s bold disregard for tradition, his clarity of vision, his relentless drive, and constant thirst for new experiences made him an inspiring collaborator to fellow musicians and a cultural icon to generations of listeners. It made him an innovator in music—from bebop to “cool jazz,” modern quintets, orchestral music, jazz fusion, rock ‘n’ roll, and even hip-hop.
The film’s debut at the cult Sundance Film Festival has seen unprecedented archive footage and personalized conversations with friends and co-creators portray the portrait of Miles Davis, for whom art was everything. Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Jimmy Cobb, Lee Konitz, Carlos Santana, or Flea from The Red Hot Chili Peppers are the names of world-renowned musicians who have been named for their landmark compilation record for Davis’ revolutionary arrangement.
