Format: Audio CD
Miles Davis remains King of Cool.In the latter part of Miles' career this remains his most accessable rcording. It is Miles a in mostly restrained yet knowingly- funky mode.Multi-instrumental Marcus Miller composes most of these tracks and his Bass Clarinet brings an unusually deep and vibrant tone to the proceedings. Best moment- Perfect Way, Miles and Marcus tearing-up the Scritti Politi pop tune.Sure,it's commercial but Miles always did it in his own unique way- Perfect!

Format: Audio CD
`Tutu', released in 1986 was one of Miles' last works and defines his later, `electronic' period. Sometimes criticised for being more the work of the highly talented multi-instrumentalist Marcus Miller than of Miles himself in the same way that `Porgy and Bess' and `Sketches of Spain' might be seen as `Gil Evans Albums', nevertheless Miles' signature style and virtuoso trumpet playing define Tutu's principle character.

The history of this project is that Miles' new contract with Warner Brothers stipulated that all songwriting credits henceforth should belong to WB rather than to Miles himself. To get around this legal irritant Miller was hired to compose the main theme for each piece as a framework over which Miles could solo, and took all legal songwriting credit. Miller has been described as "A producer who could play as well as a player who could produce" and did a good job: the resulting electronic rhythms and synth-dominant sound gives `Tutu' a distinctively 1980s feel which leads some to claim that Miles had `re-invented' jazz for the fourth or fifth time in his illustrious and multiply-groundbeaking career of continuous innovation. Well, that's stretching things a bit: `Tutu' is OK but hardly `great', in the same way `Do-Bop' is OK but not really a classic.

`Tutu' was certainly a new, fresh sound in 1986 and unlike anything else at the time which could be found under the `jazz' category. The album has a lot of energy and Miles' trumpet playing is as inventive and energetic as ever.
