Still… it’s nice to see Don Cheadle having positive things about the Miles Davis Movie:
“The story is really not… a biopic per se,” Cheadle said. “It’s not attempting to be any cradle-to-grave depiction of [Miles’] life. It’s more my take, as an artist, on what his music has meant. With wall-to-wall truth but not really much concerned about facts.”
He also plays the trumpet, but doesn’t have any intention of trying to fake the master musician’s licks. This, too, already covered! LOL!
“The instrument is a monster,” he said. “We’ve been working with the estate and Columbia… and Sony music [and they’ve] really been good about… giving us rights to the music. I don’t think I want to try to play if I can use Miles’ playing. But for the authenticity of it and for the reality of it and for me understanding the instrument, it’s great that I have that facility.”
