"This revised edition of Ian Carr's classic biography throws new light on Davis' life and career: from the early days in New York with Charlie Parker; to the Birth of Cool; through his drug addiction in the early 1950s and the years of extraordinary achievements (1954-1960), during which he signed with Columbia and collaborated with such unequaled talents as John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly and Cannonball Adderly. Carr also explores Davis' dark, reclusive period (1975-1980), offering firsthand accounts of his descent into addiction, as well as his dramatic return to life and music."--BOOK JACKET. "Carr has talked with the people who knew Miles and his music best including Bill Evans, Joe Zawinul, Keith Jarrett, Jack DeJohnette, and for this edition, updated since Davis' death, he has conducted new interviews with Ron Carter, Max Roach, John Scofield and others."--Jacket

7 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in German and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nach dem 'Rock Rough Guide' (BA 11/98) folgt nun der 'Jazz Rough Guide'. Der Hauptbestandteil dieses Jazz-Lexikons ist eine alphabetische Auflistung von Musikern und Bands in etwa 1700 Eintragungen. Auch hier dominieren natürlich Einträge von amerikanischen Musikern, doch ist der Anteil der Artikel über Nicht-Amerikaner, darunter viele deutsche Jazzmusiker, höher als bei vergleichbaren Lexika. Diskographen und inhaltliche Besprechungen weisen den Weg zu repräsentativen Aufnahmen. Im Anhang findet sich ein Glossar mit Fachbegriffen sowie Essays über Bewegungen und Stilrichtungen. Durchgängig finden sich in diesem Buch klassische Porträtaufnahmen und Abbildungen von Plattencovern. Ein umfassendes und aktuelles Lexikon, das u.a. von aktiven Jazzmusikern wie Ian Carr verfasst wurde und das vor J. Wölfer (BA 10/99) empfohlen wird. (2 A)
