In his own words, legendary jazz musician Davis—who transcended the genre in every way possible—tells the story of his remarkable life. No subject is out of bounds and no topic off limits, as Davis reveals everything about his life— his start in the music business, racial biases that permeated jazz culture during the 20th century, his drug dependency—both in and out of the spotlight. Dion Graham delivers a stellar performance—showing that he was the perfect choice to narrate this audio edition. His poise, pacing, pronunciation, and delivery are all top-notch, and—from the very beginning—he embodies Davis perfectly. His tone is steeped in wisdom, and listeners will feel as if the great musician himself is speaking to them. This audio is a treat, sure to please hardcore jazz fans and everyday listeners. A Simon & Schuster paperback. (Feb.)
