Master Brew


Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew, by yours truly, drops one week from today—22 October. You’ll be able to pick it up at any well-stocked bookstore in your area (here’s a list of bookstores that carry the series, although there are certainly book sellers who are not on the list), and of course you can still pre-order it, at a discount, from Amazon.

There will also be a handful of book events, and if you come to one I will sign your copy! You can catch me talking about the book, about Miles, and playing some of the music at:

  • October 26: BookCourt in Brooklyn.
  • November 5: Word in Greenpoint, where I’ll be appearing with Bryan C. Parker, who wrote the 33 1/3 on Beat Happening (buy his book too!), and series editor Ally-Jane Grossan.
  • November 11: Spectrum—this is a special event, a listening party, where we will listen to Bitches Brew on vinyl through Spectrum’s state-of-the-art sound system. There’ll be book talk too, and I’ll have copies to sell at a discount (cash only).
  • November 20: Librarie Drawn & Quarterly in Montréal, with more music, Miles, and book talk. I’m already expecting a good crowd of Miles Davis fans.

I hope to see you at any these events, but if you can’t make it, do buy the book. It’s good. And it’s Miles.

I sign an advance copy of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew for Elvis Costello.
