So What: Miles Davis Biography Hits Paperback

“There already exist several biographies of Miles Davis, as well as his autobiography and a memoir from his collaborator. Why then am I writing yet another Davis biography?” John Szwed writes in introduction to So What: The Life of Miles Davis. Szwed answers by saying that there is “still more to be known and a number of misunderstandings to be corrected.”

Just over 10 years after his death, there is still much room for perspective and insight into Miles Davis and his music, and So What is accessible, detailed, fresh and thoughtful. Published by Simon and Schuster in hardcover in 2002, it is now available in paperback.
