I ran across a friends book about Miles Davis, the legendary jazz musician the other day. It seems like Miles Davis is the icon of the jazz scene because a lot of musicians usually have some record, album, book or poster of his around. And reading this book "Miles" The Autobiography, one would think his lifestyle was more dramatic and interesting than his music. In this book he speaks frankly in black and white about his life and holds nothing back. He seemed to be very outspoken almost political like a preacher in his speech. And I have come across other Jazz icons biographies and movies also such as Charlie Parker, and their lives seem to have been sex, drugs, and Rock N' Roll as one would never know these jazz icons and others on the jazz scene were former junkies in their lifetime unless you read the book or watch the movie to learn the history of these figures and the jazz scene around them in their time. And the legend lives on. Long Live Jazz.
