Biography

by William Ruhlmann

Throughout a professional career lasting 50 years, Miles Davis played the trumpet in a lyrical, introspective, and melodic style, often employing a stemless Harmon mute to make his sound more personal and intimate. But if his approach to his instrument was constant, his approach to jazz was dazzlingly protean. To examine his career is to examine the history of jazz ... Read more in Amazon's Miles Davis Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A Flash of Brilliance 18 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
After some fairly average (by his standards) albums Miles went out in a blaze of glory. There are some great settings for his trumpet playing here, even with there half baked rap/vocals there are some really enjoyable tracks here. High Speed Chase is an excellent setting for Miles to showcase his playing which is ironic since the trumpet part was recorded first and the backing written after his death. A fitting swansong.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but not a classic 23 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Many reviews of this album have focused its weak points, complaining that Miles went out with an experimental album and not, I'm afraid, an all-time classic. However, I think to say that misses the whole point of this album, and of Miles' music; it was about trying new things, and for that the album should be applauded and cherished. There are a few slightly off points, but on the whole Miles' playing is fantastic and the result is a great, hugely enjoyable summer album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miles in the stlye of the hip hop bugle 18 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
I don't care what anyone says about Easy Mo Bee's contribution in this album, because after 10 years of owning it, I still love it. So much style, so much groove, it's a shame it was Miles' last album, but this really is a very nice bit work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miles gets back to the streets 9 Oct 2001
By Alan Moore VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Many jazz fans were dismissive of this album. 'It's just Miles playing over some loops' they said, totally misunderstanding the point... this is HipHop, not jazz.
The production is fine. It's rough, gritty, and hard. Miles plays the best he has since the late 70s, and sounds like he's really enjoying it. Not bad for a man in his 60s.
In a way I'm glad the other collaborations he had planned for this record didn't go ahead as it makes this more focussed. You would hardly guess 2 of the tracks were made up of old Miles sessions with a new backing!
The reason this gets a lower score is the quality of the rapping. Easy Mo Bee does fine on The Doo Bop Song, but the rest is pretty poor. It would have been nice to see some other rappers on here -- maybe from A Tribe Called Quest or De La Soul, who had more empathy for the jazzy grooves.
To those who just want to hear Kind Of Blue or Birth Of The Cool in every record he did, don't bother.
For those of us who had our eyes and ears opened by Miles' experimentation over the last half of the 20th Century, this is a fitting end to his career.

Good quality pressing, I considered buying an original but I'm not disappointed.
#I would highly recommend the Music On Vinyl re-issue
