It's about that time : Miles Davis on and off record by Richard Cook( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is quite simply one of the most original books about a jazz musician ever published - a biography-cum-discography that focuses on fourteen major albums recorded by Miles Davis, using them as jumping off points for an illuminating discussion of the turbulent life and work of the "Evil Genius of Jazz."" "Richard Cook, a veteran writer respected throughout the jazz world, looks at such landmark recordings as Birth of the Cool, Miles Ahead, Kind of Blue, The Complete Live at The Plugged Nickel, In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew, and Live at Montreux. Each of these recordings is considered in detail, illuminating their contribution to Davis's development as instrumentalist, group leader, and composer. But Cook goes well beyond these fourteen albums, evaluating all the trumpeter's recordings (official and bootleg) and relating them to events in Miles's life as well as to wider currents in contemporary music. Cook helps us disentangle Miles the legendary figure from the music itself, to re-hear and reconsider this marvelous body of work ranging over four exhilarating decades. The author also highlights the indispensable contributions of sidemen such as John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, John Scofield, and many others, as well as calling for a reassessment of the importance of such "satellite" figures as Gil Evans, Bill Evans, Wayne Shorter, Tony Williams, and Chick Corea in the development of Miles's music."--Publisher's description

Blue Note Records : the biography by Richard Cook( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blue Note is a label that stands for more than just the extraordinary music in its catalogue. The label's story has hitherto been told only through collections of art and photography, foregrounding the label as an arbiter of style that continues to have great influence. Francis Wolff's photography, coupled with Reid Miles' designs, set an unrepeatable standard which has become a classic design symbol." "But of course it was not only style and elegance in design that set Blue Note apart: Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, Bud Powell, Sonny Rollins and - perhaps the archetypal Blue Note group - Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers all made their most significant early recordings under the auspices of the Blue Note genius." "The body of this book is a detailed history of the label from its beginnings in 1939, its development, rise, fall and rebirth. Also included is a parallel analysis of all the major records released by the label throughout its history."--Jacket
