Description - Miles and Me by Quincy Troupe
Quincy Troupe's candid account of his friendship with Miles Davis is a revealing portrait of a great musician and an intimate study of a unique relationship. It is also a chronicle of the author's own development, both artistic and personal. As Davis's collaborator on "Miles: The Autobiography", Troupe - one of the major poets to emerge from the 1960s - had exceptional access to the musician. This memoir goes beyond the life portrayed in the autobiography to describe in detail the processes of Davis's spectacular creativity and the joys and difficulties his passionate, contradictory temperament posed to the men's friendship. It shows how Miles Davis, both as a black man and an artist, influenced not only Quincy Troupe but whole generations.
