Summary The archetypal jazzman, Miles Davis was considered the twentieth-century incarnation of cool, both in his attitude and in his playing. He established himself as one of the greatest innovators in jazz, a genre he never stopped confronting and departmentalizing through various aesthetic revolutions.
