Born in in Alton, Illinois. As he develops, the interviews show Davis gaining confidence and stature, showing swagger and becoming the over-the-top, say-it-like-it-is showman that made every interview an event.

The two I am currently reading are Miles and Me and Miles The Autobiography. Both penned by Quincy Troupe. I highly recommend both. And although not an autobiography, I also highly recommend The Miles Davis Reader, Interviews and Features from DOWNBEAT Magazine.
