Format: Audio CD
Some things come into the world perfectly formed.

Ms Wilson's 1999 recording 'Travelling Miles' is one of them.

Less a tribute album to the late Mr Davis - perhaps more
a meditation and a love letter.

The dark velvety tones of Ms Wilson's remarkably
beautiful voice have never sounded better than here,

The twelve tracks, three of them self-penned, weave a
rich and varied tapestry.

Her take on Ms Lauper and Mr Hyman's 'Time After Time'
(despite unforgivably sloppy guitar tuning from Mr Breit)
is a thing of beauty.

So too her own song 'Travelling Miles', recalling in some
ways Joni Mitchell's estimable paen to Charles Mingus.

The mercurial ensemble playing on 'Seven Steps', particularly
Mr Carter's violin and Mr Harris' vibraphone, is especially
commendable.

'Someday My Prince Will Come' gets a magnificent rendition.

Mr Davis' 'Sky and Sea (Blue and Green' also gets a sultry
and seductive treatment.

Treasures aplenty then on this captivating album.

There were great things still to come (notably 'Belly Of
The Sun' : 2002) but for my money this recording remains
the pinnacle, so-far, of Ms Wilson's vocal career.

Highly Recommended.

These days, if i hear music that appeals I do something about it as I'm always listening out for new music - and this is new. I wouldn't describe myself as a true jazz enthusiast but this is sufficiently non-commercial for those who want something more challenging than mainstream jazz (for want of a better category description). Of the 3 Cass Wilson CDs I ordered, this is my favourite. Not at all disappointed with this experimental CD. Mrs D.B., Kent

This 1999 self-produced album is by way of the songs contained on it, and by the title a satisfying tribute to Jazz's prince of darkness "Miles Davis". The tunes on this album include orginal songs by Wilson and standards associated with the trumpeter and a cover of "Time after time" by Cyndi Lauper" which done by Cassandra Wilson takes on a whole new twist. This recording is of the highest standard in sound and production, I would expect nothing less from the "Blue Note" label.
You can Buy this album with confidence, the whole audio experience is very satisfying both in lyrical content and vocal performance, superb chill-out stuff...

By os TOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 Jan 2013
Format: Audio CD
'Traveling Miles' is an intriguing and for the most part entertaining mixture of blues, folk and jazz.Reworking compositions associated with Miles Davis,with an eclecticism not unlike Betty Carter, adding lyrics here,or some shimmering guitar or fat rhythmic pulse there, the result is a glossily produced yet substantial and varied collection of covers and self-penned numbers.

Critics of the album might suggest that the whole affair is just a little too slick. Perhaps. But it takes an artist of real talent and ambition to produce an album as varied and thoughtful as this one. Cassandra has a marvelously smokey voice,that sometimes almost slows almost to a drawl making her music seem 'lived in' and highly personal.Once you've heard Cassandra sing,you won't ever mistake her for anyone else, guaranteed. It also doesn't hurt that she managed to get great players like Dave Holland,Pat Metheny and Steve Coleman on board. The success of the whole approach lies with the arrangements,making us hear tunes like 'Seven Steps' and 'Never Broken' in a new way. Refreshing,even if you might raise an eyebrow or two at some of the arrangements, from time to time.

This is one album that is a pleasure to hear from end to end,in fact I have found it a little addictive. I suggest you try the tune 'Traveling Miles',if you like it, you'll like this disc, if not then your money would be better spent elsewhere. But for me its a recording that is worth the effort of getting to know.There are so many little musical details coupled with a cool swinging approach that make this all but irresistible. Recommended.
