4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully simple music, 18 Jun. 2003
I picked this up after seeing them perform live as a nine piece band. The live performance was amazing, and the CD evokes it well. The music has originality and energy, and the album is a good mix of the more jumpy dance style, and their own laid back melodic chill-out music. I play this album a lot - its one of those rare CDs that fits any mood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Siren song, 21 April 2003
This review is from: Sketches of Spain (Audio CD)
For me this is miles' best work. Downbeat, at times introspective, but always melodic and beautiful. I think i must have listened to Solea almost every week for the last 5 years.
This is Miles before he went all high tempo and electric. It's similar to Porgy and Bess in terms of the overall almost symphonic tonal quality, and similar to the musical excellence of Kind of Blue. Where this has the edge for me though is it's just Miles, no succession of solos. That means that miles develops complex, long, and emotionally intense performances.
