Miles Davis: Birth of The Cool (15) *SOLD OUT*

Sun 20 October @ 3:00 pm

£7 – £10

Miles Davis: Birth of The Cool (15) – 2019, USA, 115 mins

Director: Stanley Nelson

Miles Davis: horn player, bandleader, innovator. Elegant, intellectual, vain. Callous, conflicted, controversial. Magnificent, mercurial. Genius. The very embodiment of cool. The man with a sound so beautiful it could break your heart.

 The central theme of Miles Davis’s life was his restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms. It made him a star. For the people who loved him most, it also made him incredibly difficult to live with. Again and again, in music and in life, Miles broke with convention—and when he thought his work came to represent a new convention, he changed it again. Miles’s bold disregard for tradition, his clarity of vision, his relentless drive, and constant thirst for new experiences made him an inspiring collaborator to fellow musicians and a cultural icon to generations of listeners. It made him an innovator in music—from bebop to “cool jazz,” modern quintets, orchestral music, jazz fusion, rock ’n’ roll, and even hip-hop.   

 Featuring never-before-seen archival footage, studio outtakes, and rare photos, Miles Davis: Birth of the Cooltells the story of a truly singular talent and unpacks the man behind the horn.

Bar drinks served from 2pm. Film at 3pm.
