Miles Davis : a biography by Ian Carr( Book )

18 editions published between 1981 and 2002 in 6 languages and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depuis sa première apparition sur la scène new-yorkaise du jazz à l'âge de dix-neuf ans, Miles Davis n'a cessé d'alimenter les controverses, que ce soit par sa musique, son comportement, ou plus encore par ses silences et ses retraites. Pourtant, dès ses séances formatrices avec Charlie Parker et Dizzy Gillespie, la carrière du trompettiste est marquée du signe unique de la préoccupation musicale. Miles Davis a joué et fait jouer : son intuition stimulante au-delà de leur propre style à la découverte de nouveaux espaces sonores, son parcours ayant croisé pour un temps les meilleurs instrumentistes que le jazz ait comptés. Il aura ainsi exploré toutes les formes et toutes les formations, des quartette et quintette des années cinquante aux compositions pour grand orchestre et aux arrangements teintés de la culture rock des années soixante-dix
Miles Davis : the definitive biography by Ian Carr( Book )

36 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."

Keith Jarrett : the man and his music by Ian Carr( Book )

24 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and Italian and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keith Jarrett is probably the most influential jazz pianist living today: his concerts have made him world famous. He was a child prodigy who had his first solo performance at the age of seven. In the sixties he played with the Jazz Messengers and then with the Charles Lloyd Quartet, touring Europe, Asia, and Russia. He played electric keyboards with Miles Davis at the beginning of the seventies, and went on to lead two different jazz groups-one American and one European. He straddles practically every form of twentieth century music-he has produced totally composed music, and has performed classical music as well as jazz. Jarrett has revolutionized the whole concept of what a solo pianist can do. And his albums such as Solo Concerts (at Lausanne and Bremen), Belonging, The Koln Concert, and My Song have gained him a worldwide following. Now, with Keith Jarrett: The Man and His Music, Ian Carr has written the definitive story of Jarrett's musical development and his personal journey. This is a revealing, fascinating, and enlightening account of one of the outstanding musicians of our age
