Stanley Nelson explains : “What's surprising is that there's never been a biography of Miles on film,” “Miles is such an interesting character. Some jazz musicians are great musicians, but their lives can be very boring. But Miles was a real character and I thought it would make a great film” External link

Stanley Nelson says : “Whenever people would tell stories about Miles, they would naturally go into that [raspy] voice,” “We felt that was the way to do Miles' narration—[that] Miles in some way would narrate his own story. Carl Lumbly did a great job. It's hard to describe. You can't say that he narrated it—he kind of embodies Miles, and it worked” External link

Stanley Nelson says ( about Miles Davis ) : “I think one of the things that you see in the film is the connection of his music,” “People want to see Miles' music as making these incredible leaps. And he does. But the leaps come from a platform that he is already on. Elevator to the Gallows [a 1958 French film that featured Davis’ score ] leaped into Kind of Blue . It was surprising how there was this through-line not only in his personal life but also in his music” External link

Stanley Nelson says : “I didn't' realize Miles grew up very wealthy, and that was a big part of his story,” “And then it all starts to make sense...that he expected and wanted a certain kind of treatment as a black man in America at the time, and he struggled to get it. That's why he walked around with a chip on his shoulder. He saw his parents be abusive to each other. Later on we see how it was one of the ways that affected Miles” External link

Stanley Nelson said ( about Miles Davis ) : “The story of Miles Davis — who he was as a man and artist — has often been told as the tale of a drug-addled genius,” “You rarely see a portrait of a man that worked hard at honing his craft, a man who deeply studied all forms of music, from Baroque to classical Indian. An elegant man who could render ballads with such tenderness yet hold rage in his heart from the racism he faced throughout his life. He could be romantic and pursue women relentlessly, yet treat them with cruelty upon winning them over. He could be extremely generous, yet rescind that generosity on a whim” External link

And he does. But the leaps come from a platform that he is already on. Elevator to the Gallows [a 1958 French film that featured Davis’ score ] leaped into Kind of Blue . It was surprising how there was this through-line not only in his personal life but also in his music” External link

That's why he walked around with a chip on his shoulder. He saw his parents be abusive to each other. Later on we see how it was one of the ways that affected Miles” External link
