Summary

"Cole does for Miles's late work what Ian MacDonald'sRevolution in the Headdoes for the Beatles, examining each album in meticulous detail." Time Out "As with any good musical biography, Cole . . . made me think again about those albums such asSiesta, You're Under Arrest,andThe Man with the Hornthat are now stashed in my attic." LondonTimes "In the flurry of books since [Miles Davis's] death, none has dealt in depth with the music of this period. Music writer George Cole fills this gap. . . . a rich and rewarding read." Gazette (Montreal) "A fascinating book." Mojo "A singular look into the last stage of Davis's long, somewhat checkered career gained from various sources, which at the same time gives a picture of the modern music business." MidwestBook Review "There are large chunks of fresh material here. . . . Fill[s] in quite a few gaps and dismisses blanket condemnations of [Miles's] pop phase." Jazzwise "Thank you for telling it like it was!" Randy Hall, singer and guitarist "Very moving, emotional material." Gordon Meltzer, Miles's last road manager and executive producer ofDoo-Bop
