Music Books [Issue #23]
: Dark Magus: The Jekyll and Hyde Life of Miles Davis
By Dean Truitt


As with any maverick artist, Miles Davisí dominating legacy will ultimately endure largely within the confines of his art.
However, the brilliant musicianís reputation and mercurial behavior remains a great point of interest to jazz aficionados throughout the world. Davis himself fueled the controversy with his autobiography, Miles, published shortly before his death. Surprisingly, the trumpeterís son, Gregory, has undertaken the onerous task of providing an evenhanded account of his fatherís genius and erratic behavior. The ongoing theme of Jekyll and Hyde clearly applies to the artist because he was seemingly fighting an inner struggle between opposing instincts. The author gives intimate access into his fatherís family life and how his actions altered the lives of his entire family. At times, Davis would be sober and then lunge into self-destructive drug binges. While much of the tale discusses his fatherís many artistic triumphs and personal demons, Davis also provides interesting details regarding the jazz iconís dealings with Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, among many other legends.
