Miles Davis


Miles Davis in Gleason’s Gym, New York City, 1969

Baron was lucky enough to not only shoot Miles with his better, more glamorous half, but also to follow him to Gleason’s gym, taking a few shots of Miles with his bright red 275 GTB Ferrari along the way. Davis tried to get Wolman into a bit of a workout, but Wolman declined. Read more and see more photos of the day spent with Davis in the book.

Miles and Betty Davis

Miles Davis could be an intimidating subject but Baron and he got along fine. Betty was an outstanding recording artist in her own right – each Davis obviously influenced the other during their brief marriage. Betty was also a model, and Miles was also a visual artist – one if his paintings is the background here. In the book, Baron reveals “like Jerry Garcia, his artwork was later transferred to commercially available neckties.”
