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.
