Ummm...

So if it mostly focuses on late period Miles why was the majority of the sound track Kind Of Blue?

Flashback sequences coupled with recognizable (to most) music.

I'll watch it. Looks nutty.

The later sequences had KOB playing as well. 

I just wonder why Cheadle didn't go with that period.

In this interview which Dmitry posted Cheadle says he doesn't go for chronology and is happy to have Kinda Blue in 1969, etc, etc.  Phew!

Yeah, I can't say I was impressed by the trailer. Looks like a buddy action movie. Fuck that.

Kind Of Blue music and On The Corner characters.

The Great Reconciliation begins, perhaps quite accidentally, perhaps not.

This film is purportedly set during Mile's mid-70s "retirement," right?

Was it not ever thus? Movies about jazz have nearly always been made for mass audiences and not for jazz fans. I was reminded of this recently when I tried - unsuccessfully - to watch for a second time the recent jazz drumming saga, Whiplash.

Lousy? I've watched the trailer. It looked like Karate Kid Drummer.

Well received by cinema audiences generally. The problem seems to be if you know anything about drumming, jazz, music - things like that. ;)

Is there a scene where he plays to a bunch of posh folks who initially look outraged and then start to tap their feet?

Jazz aficionados are going to be able to lunch out for weeks on how unimpressed they were with this new film. I feel a Ken Burns situation a'comin' on.

Cheadle seems to have Miles' voice down pretty well.

I'm not that familiar with Miles' life story. Was he really punching and shooting that often?

The trailer left me pleasantly surprised. From the initial press releases when it was in development I expected the worse, everything sounded wrong: Miles in his 70s retirement, some kind of gangster movie as we watch the primitive trying to score drugs. Thankfully, it appears to be a wider scope than this.
