Miles Davis: Miles Runs The Voodoo Down

Richard Cook, New Musical Express, 13 July 1985

The man with the horn, MILES DAVIS, whose silvery trumpet lines have embellished jazz for 40 years, is back in action with a new band and a new LP. In this rare interview, RICHARD COOK hears all about the maestro's liking for shiny clothes, his break-up with Columbia, and the appalling table manners of Charlie Parker and John Coltrane.
