Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool

The central theme of Miles Davis’s life was his restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms. It made him a star; it also made him incredibly difficult to live with, for the people who loved him most. Miles’s bold disregard for tradition, his clarity of vision, his relentless drive, and constant thirst for new experiences made him an inspiring collaborator to fellow musicians and a cultural icon to generations of listeners. 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.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)
