Miles really called up Phil Schaap on the air and told him he talked too much. See more »
The film is clearly set in the late 1970s, when Miles was not playing, and before he released The Man With the Horn (1981). A number of scenes in his basement studio include a Marshall Micro-stack amp, which was first manufactured in 1985. See more »
How many times have you got laid to this man's music? No offence, Tami. and now you are shystering him?

Absolutely stunning! Attended the world premiere at the NewYork film festival this past weekend. As the film ended, my mind felt entranced. The film's rapid clip style and dramatic ending made me film as if I had viewed one of Mile's mind blowing paintings. Somehow, it all seemed to come together as one mental image at the end. An ingenious portrayal of both Miles music and painting style. Along with the fabulous music throughout, the movie even included a clip of miles working on one of his paintings, as if the cue us in on the films approach.
The music of Miles Davis provides the background for many of the scenes and it is performed in many scenes. As Miles was also an accomplished abstract painter, he is also featured creating some of his artwork. His challenges, triumphs and failures in love, the music industry, music composition, health, etc. compose a collage that comes together like one of his abstract paintings. At the end, a stunning scene brings it all together and emphasizes the phenomenal impact of the Miles music through today, for all time, and across many genres.
