Dave Braden, The Rolling Stone reporter, is entirely fictional. In an interview with Rolling Stone, published March 14, 2016, Ewan McGregor said "It's less a Miles biopic than an attempt to cast Miles in a caper flick that he *might* like to have been part of."
I don't like that word, "jazz". Don't... Don't call it "jazz", man. That's some made-up word. Trying to box somebody in. Don't call my music "jazz". It's social music.
At the end of the film, Miles Davis is portrayed as wearing a vest that has the Twitter-related "#socialmusic" on its back. Davis died in 1991, but Twitter wasn't started until 2006.
