Running The Voodoo Down The Electric Music Of Miles Davis

    Backbeat Books

    STILL ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS ON MILES! Classic Electric Miles book OVER 50% - Just £6 squid!

    This book re-assesses Miles Davis' "electric period" and analyzes its continuing influence on contemporary music. While jazz purists often revile this phase - which encompasses the entire second half of his career, from 1967 until his death in 1991 - this book takes a new, appreciative look at this music and shows its importance to Davis' career and to jazz as a whole. The author also reveals surprising connections between Davis, Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, particularly the ways they fed each other's creativity.
