"Dark Magus: The Jekyll and Hyde Life of Miles Davis"
written by his son Gregory Davis.
Come meet musician and author Gregory Davis at a celebration of the release of his memoir detailing life with his father, Miles Davis.
Dark Magus is a no-holds-barred portrait, a warts-and-all look at Miles Davis that strips away the public perception and gets down to the realities of his personality. The author also delves into Davis's relationships with artists such as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and John Coltrane, his role as a mentor to young musicians, his obsession with sports, the ups and downs of his career and its affect on his family, and the family's turmoil over his final will.
