Well I have enjoyed the the Miles Davis discography from his work in the late 1940s till 1991.

This album has been much ignored - was it because it was the follow up to Tutu (a fine pop album) and Marcus Miller did a fine job there?

This album has SOUL in buckets. I know Marcus again plays a major part in the final product, however without Miles it would be nothing as I believe Marcus would concur.

Miles is like Picasso adding those touches and sounds that defy gravity. Probably his greatest STUDIO album and it matches the work with Gil Evans because the emotion is just overwhelming (it lacks also Teo Macero's excesses!). We are listening to an artist that just knows how to evoke the true feeling.

Truely priceless - please buy and relish.

Miles said "As soon as Gil Evans had gone,"Siesta" had been released. As it was the music close to "Sketches of Spain", I gave credit for "This alubum is dedicated to GIL EVANS:The Master"" in his autobiography.
Miles said to Marcus "Compose the music of "Siesta" by the feeling of "Sketches of Spain."" in his autobiograhy too."Siesta" was puroduced by Miles Davis & Marcus Miller,all tracks was composed by Marcus except "Theme for Augustine" composed by Miles & Marcus,you know.
First "Siesta" starts with the sounds like pianostrings were thrumed,though there were the sounds of harpstrings in "Sketches of Spain", and Miles plays "Lost in Madrid" by lyrical ,sad and clear sound of his trumpet. "Lost in Madrid" is so beautiful and sad ballad. And I think "Siesta" of next track is like "Concierto de Aranjuez" in "Sketches of Spain". John Scofeld,not Al Di Meola but John Sco, is playing acoustic guitar by spanish touch and Miles is playing new "Aranjuez" on spanish beat and heavy rock beat. In the track of "Claire" Earl Klugh,not John Williams but Earl Klugh,is playing classical guitar with Miles. I think on 80's Miles Davis and Marcus Miller paid their respects to Gil Evans and tried to evolve and revive "Sketches of Spain" arrenged and conducted by Gil Evence 27 years before and created this alubum,"Siesta". If you feel like the atomosphere of this alubum is not brave but sad, it is due to the refrain of "Lost in Madrid". I think "Lost in Madrid" is not ballad but elegy. Miles said "But he knew his destiny and I knew it too." in his autobiography. And he said " No. I don't think that Gil had dead. Because my heart doesn't think so and he is aliving in my heart and spirit. I can listen his music and I can try to think put myself into the heart of Gil. He was my best friend.

..it is so intensely moody, lonely and haunting that you are right there, with (?as?) the female protagonist of the story. I'm not normally a modern jazz/Miles Davis fan, but there is a very clear, calling voice here you can't ignore. Whether it's Gil Evans' arrangement for Miles Davis (he did a lot of that, apparently) or sheer improv., or written down note for note, I don't care. By the end of it, I was soo upset I couldn't BE there in the landscape the plaintiff calling of the horn and orchestral support had so easily sketched.
This wasn't an album I just 'listened' to - I felt it/experienced it and feel bad for anyone who hasn't got it.
You will NEVER forget this album.

Format: Audio CD
This is the soundtrack album for a film called 'Siesta'. The film has pretty much disappeared from the catalogues, probably because it got a bit of a panning from the critics. This music lives on though. Deservedly so. Miles Davis' evocative playing is so exquisite here that the movie is totally irrelevant, the music is all that matters, and this really does matter. Buy it. Savour it. Close your eyes and be carried away by it. Once you have heard it you won't want to be without it ever again.
