Description

Soon to be a major motion picture from the producers of Fences and The Hurricane

“Brilliant, poetic, provocative, Quincy Troupe’s Miles & Me reveals the man behind the dark glasses and legend.”—Ishmael Reed 

Poet, activist, and journalist Quincy Troupe’s candid account of his friendship with Miles Davis is a revealing portrait of a great musician and an engrossing chronicle of the author’s own artistic and personal growth. Miles & Me describes in intimate detail the sometimes harrowing processes of Davis’s spectacular creativity and the joys and travails Davis’s passionate and contradictory temperament posed to the two men’s friendship. Miles & Me shows how Davis, both as an artist and as a black man, influenced Troupe and whole generations of Americans while forever changing the face of jazz. 

With a new introduction by film producer Rudy Langlais, an original photo essay of Miles and Quincy together by Jon Stevens, and a new Q&A with Quincy Troupe about how—and why—he came to write Miles & Me.
