Legendary musician Miles Davis was a notoriously “difficult” artist to interview. Known for his fiery outbursts about race and his antagonistic attitudes towards audiences and journalists he was routinely labeled in the press as “Prince of Darkness” and “Mr. Don’t call me cool.” But careful readings of the actual interviews that Miles conducted reveal a much more complex and deeply intellectual performer. Poet, playwright and editor MICHAEL K. DORR and Paul Maher Jr. have gathered most of the known interviews with Miles Davis and published them in a revealing book titled MILES ON MILES: INTERVIEWS AND ENCOUNTERS WITH MILES DAVIS. Tune in as Inquiry talks with Michael Dorr about the real Miles Davis.
