A gifted trumpeter, innovative band leader and confounding figure, the complex legacy left behind by Miles Davis posits endlessly compelling avenues for documentary gold. Aiming for comprehensiveness, filmmaker Stanley Nelson's Grammy-nominated Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool which recently premiered on PBS relies heavily on the surviving testimony of Herbie Hancock, ex-wife Francis Taylor and never-before-seen relics from the Miles Davis Estate. Notable in the interest of discovering the man behind the legend is the milieu of humanizing images from Morrison Hotel Gallery photographers like Don Hunstein, Francis Wolff, Amalie R. Rothschild, Herman Leonard, Baron Wolman and Glen Craig whose numerous (and now-iconic sessions) with Davis depict the individual he remembers as being "among the most aware artists I'd shot...He had a fashion, style sense, visual orientation and seemed to understand the potential of a good photo." For more information regarding these and/or other fine art photographs available for purchase from the MHG archives, please inquire via local gallery representative or our complimentary online concierge service.
