Looking forward to seeing the movie about trumpeter Chet Baker starring Ethan Hawke called Born To Be Blue. I love these movies about jazz musicians. Chet played with Charlie Parker for a few gigs.

I just saw the movie Miles Ahead about music icon Miles Davis by actor, director Don Cheadle and when I walked out of the theater I immediately thought "Miles would like this movie about him, Miles would have liked to be himself in this movie." It was not a traditional biopic. Found this interview of Don Cheadle and that's what he was trying to achieve.
