Format: Audio CD
There were some people who put Jazz on a Pedastal and claimed that Miles Davis' music of the 1980s was not "real jazz." Miles himself ignored their comments and enjoyed the most active touring decade of his life. His band was the funkiest on Earth and thrilled audiences of all ages everywhere he went. Throughout this supurb live album, we here his perfect partnership with alto saxophonist Kenny Garret glow, while a solid groove which forces you to tap a foot or groove in time is provided by his young rhythm section of Foley Mcreary(guitar), Benny Rietveld ( or Richard Patterson, bass) and Ricky Wellman (drums). Electrifying keyboards enhance each piece and despite his frailty at that time, Miles' trumpeting is wonderful. The album includes Marcus Miller's "Tutu" as well as Miles versions of the pop songs "Human Nature" and "Time After Time." The haunting "Hannibal" from his last ever concert brings a perfect album to a close.

If you want one representative album of latter day Miles, then this superior live recording is an easy disc to recommend. Many critics have written off MD's flirtation with pop tunes and funk, suggesting that this was simply going with a trend, when Miles was the one who used to set them. This is a highly accessible fusion record. Is it jazz, well depending your point of view, it is more or less then that. I admire just about all of Miles' output, although I stop short at some efforts, such as 'Man with the Horn' and `Star People' so you might want to disregard what I say. So when I blithely state that this is a very, very good album, I am not blind to some of the flaws of this set.

This is a very entertaining set for a number of reasons. Firstly because it highlights that despite the obvious frailty of Mile's playing, he still had that God -given tone and inventiveness. His statement of the melody on tracks like 'Time After Time' is deeply moving. He sounds involved in the music. He is directing all that goes on and listens all the time to what his band are doing and judging by the evidence of my ears at least, is enjoying himself immensely. The next reason that comes to mind is that this band is very, very good indeed. I loved the 'lead' bass of Foley throughout and of course players like saxophonist Kenny Garrett and keyboardist Joey De Franco are far from slouches. Finally, there is a wealth of great material here, from the accelerated funk of 'Wrinkle' and 'Intruder' to a lovely version of 'Human Nature, where the band really get to show off their chops and not to forget of course, the ever lovely 'In a Silent Way', its a very consistent and thoughtfully assembled collection of cuts. Buy!

I have had this album as a cassette for many years, and played it until the cassette has broken. I couldn't be without the music. The re-mastered cd may have lost a little in atmosphere, but this is more than compensated by a gain in clarity. Listen to the track "Time after Time" for instance, and be overwhelmed.

An amazing album of Miles live in the last quarter of his remarkable music career. And what amazing musicians to have around at the time to make it work. This is, for me, a highlight in what we all thought would be the less important years in Miles' musical history. Proves how wrong one can be.
