MILES DAVIS The Man With the Horn

by | Read by Ross Porter

Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2004

Troubled drug-addicted genius; temperamental, violent iconoclast; internationally admired jazz ground-breaker--trumpeter Miles Davis was all of these. This well-knit CBC production unites canny narration by author Ross Porter with a wide selection of Davis's music. From Davis's earliest days as a sideman to his final days as a (barely) living legend, The Man With the Horn showcases long cuts of legendary jazz trumpet and outstanding ensembles dominated by Davis's demanding persona. Sound quality is clean yet warm; editing choices are strong--even celebrity interviews are free of extraneous noise. The CBC team immortalizes Miles Davis in fine form. D.J.B.
