Miles Davis: The Birth of the Cool
With post-film live jazz
Forum Cinema Hexham / Saturday 28th March
Screening of Miles Davis: The Birth of the Cool followed by live jazz from Swing Bridge in Forum Cinema Hexham’s Café Bar.
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.
Featuring never-before-seen archival footage, studio outtakes, and rare photos, Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool tells the story of a truly singular talent and unpacks the man behind the horn.
