“We Want Miles” is more than a biography of one of jazz’s most important figures.

It is also a multi-sided look at the man and his music.

While Franck Bergerot is the author, the book also contains essays written by saxophonist Dave Liebman and producer George Avakian, among others. Bergerot, who wrote 53 liner notes in the Complete Columbia Album Collection, is the editor-in-chief of Jazz Magazine. He knows his stuff and has put together a good biography divided into eras.
