Over six full decades, from his arrival on the national scene in 1945 until his death in 1991, Miles Davis made music that grew from an uncanny talent to hear the future and a headstrong desire to play it.

From his beginnings in the circle of modern jazz, he came to intuit new worlds of sound and challenge. While the vast majority of musicians—jazz, rock, R&B, otherwise –find the experimental charge and imperviousness of youth eventually running down, Miles forever forged ahead, trusting and following his instinct until the end.
