This I know for sure: I love jazz, and I loved "Miles Ahead."
I don't know if jazz icon Miles Davis really robbed a CBS executive at gunpoint, as depicted in Don Cheadle's movie opening Friday April 15 at the Esquire Theatre in Clifton.
I don't know if Davis (portrayed by Cheadle) and a "Rolling Stone" writer (Ewan McGregor) fired gunshots in a car chase trying to recover a recording tape stolen from Davis's New York City home in 1979.
I do know Davis wanted to keep the recording private. Cheadle, who co-wrote the screenplay, told me that before he started filming here in summer 2014.
The script was once called "Kill The Trumpet Player." I don't know how historically accurate the screenplay is about Davis, a major figure in the bebop, cool jazz and jazz fusion movements who died in 1991 at age 65.
