The live album, "We Want Miles", was the record that first got me into Miles Davis, and it remains a great introduction to Miles' early eighties comeback.
The CD version has been edited slightly from the original double album, but it's six tracks still clock in at over 75 minutes!
Recorded in New York, Boston and Tokyo, most of the material here has been taken from the "Man with the Horn" album. As usual, Miles gets the most from his young, enthusiastic band with Marcus Miller (bass), John Schofield (Guitar) and Bill Evans (Soprano Sax) on particularly good form (the latter's soling on "Kix" is one of the album's many highpoints).
The stand-out track is the 20+ minute, radical re-interpretation of Gershwin's "My Man's Gone Now", which Miles first performed on "Porgy and Bess".
Overall the album has a spacious, funky feel to it and, despite his illness, Miles is clearly enjoying himself.
A superb introduction to late period Miles.

Always been a fan of Miles Davis. This live album from 1982 puts him together with a young Marcus Miller. It is as good as it gets, the interaction between them along with the rest of the excellent band is so cool. The counterpoint between trumpet and twanging base guitar is amazing. Every track is great. You wont be disappointed.

Even though miles sounds a bit strained in places, these live recordings pack plenty of punch.
Some nice guitar work from mike stern added with marcus millers strong bass. .The sound quality
is a little harsh in places, but overall this is a great session

This is a really good live album. The best release during the Marcus Miller era. The slightly disappointing thing about the previous CD release of this album was that some of the tracks had been trimmed to fit on a single CD without pushing the capacity of that technology to its limits.

The great thing here is you have all the original tracks as they were on the double vinyl release as well as the 3 additional tracks that were on the Japanese release Miles! Miles! Miles! That album shared some track with We Want Miles (some were pretty much the trimmed versions that appeared on the original CD version of this album)

I know that I am a bit of a completeist so although I already had the single CD version of this and Japanese album , was still worth getting

I originally could not find this 2 CD version as an MP3 download. The Amazon link on the 2 CD verson links to the MP3s of the single CD version but search under MP3 rather than Music and you'll find it. I downloaded it as single track from multi-album CD boxed set MP3s "The Perfect Miles Davis Collection" at only slight extra cost.

Miles Davis,he was burdened with a grave duty of post contemporary jazz and leading the jazz music,has released "The Man with The Horn" in the world on 1981.And the king of jazz has rivived or he has rivived and has become the king of jazz both name and reality.
On 1982 he has released "We Want MILES". And he got Grammy!
"JEAN PIERRE" :This boy's name is the name of a son of Miles's wife,Frances.I remember the west open ground of shinjyuku in Tokyo,Japan,it's already cold autumn evening on 1981 and Miles looked like a little sick so I thought that he could not play for long time. But I was very glad and happy to watch him and listen his play at live. When first storong electric base was played by Marcus Miller,I remembered "Bitches Brew" and felt tention. But after that Miles plays so cute pop tune by his horn just like dandling a baby on his knees. It is very simple,happy and humorous melody we cannot forget once we listen. I think it is like Japanese children's song,the flower of tulip or Mr.moon. And I think this tune is becoming to Miles world people should be wanted and loved.Then Mike Stern plays rock guiter and Bill Evens plays popy sax on rock rythm by Macus and Al with its theme. And I wonder Miles's trumpet is shouting at the last of melody. I remember Miles played again this tune for encore that day. So "JEAN PIERRE" was etced in my mind forever that hot evening of Miles,there might be certainly Miles moon in autumn sky on Oct.4th 1981. And on the year "We Want Miles" was released Michael Jackson released "THRILLER",you know. And today I listened again "Beat it" "The Girls is Mine" "Billie Jean" and "Human Nature" Miles played in "You're Under Arrest".
"BACK SEAT BETTY":This is live version of "Back Seat Betty" in "The Man With The Horn".
