"However, the images comprise the main attraction here. Included are nearly every iconic image of the trumpeter--from Don Hunstein's photos of Miles in the studio recording 'Kind of Blue' to Irving Penn's stark and dramatic portrait for the Tutu album cover." "Jazz Times""Franck Bergamot's "We Want Miles: Miles Davis vs. Jazz" is an incredibly thorough look at the life and work of the 'Picasso of Jazz, ' one of America's most important musicians. It is touted as a photography book, and it does indeed contain an astounding collection of photos, as well as images of his album covers, concert posters, club flyers, and art he inspired, but it also contains a wealth of writing from people who came into contact with him over his long and storied career." Typo-Graphical.com""We Want Miles" is much more than a coffee table photobook. It is a complete visual and textual history of every chapter in the iconic horn player's career and ultimately portrays well both the evolutionary and the revolutionary story of this giant of jazz." BlogOnBooks.com."..this beautifully rendered book is a grand accompaniment to understanding and appreciating a music legend and cultural pioneer whose influence transcends jazz and music in general." fest21.com "The most comprehensive and lavishly illustrated volume on the jazz great to date..."
