Miles Davis was a singular force of nature, the very embodiment of cool. Driven by Davis's own words, Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool relies on home movies, interviews with collaborators like Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock, and close listening to Miles's music to paint a portrait of the man and his times. He is revealed as a man of brooding intensity and exceptional devotion to his craft - and one who struggled to escape addictions, violence and segregation. His unique impact on American music reverberates today.
