Davis is a great subject: a landmark musician whose innovations have a continuing resonance, and a confounding personality whose abuse of women in particular leaves a bad taste. Survivors of Davis who tell their tales here include Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Juliet Greco and Davis’s first wife Frances Taylor. Critics also contribute insights. Davis mavens will hear familiar stuff. But more than a few moments here are new, and real grabbers.
