Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool (2019)

Stanley Nelson Jr. directs Miles Davis, Carl Lumbly and Frances Davis in this documentary biography of the troubled jazz great.

The super quick montages of candid photo sets really bring this movie to life. A fine review of an unparalleled career and difficult figure. His jazz (pre-1969) is still fantastic and the insights into its composition accessible but illuminating.
