Miles Davis

Jazz Musician and Composer

Series: Celebrating Black Artists

By Charlotte Etinde-Crompton and Samuel Willard Crompton

A bandleader and trumpet player, Miles Davis was one of the twentieth century's greatest musicians. Performing with jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker early in his career, Davis expanded the idea of what jazz could be. His greatest albums redefined the genre, and members of his band, such as Wayne Shorter and Chick Corea, went on to become famous in their own right. Readers will learn that Davis also faced challenges, including rocky romances and a drug addiction he struggled to kick. Through it all, he found comfort in his music, which remains relevant decades after his death.
