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.

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".

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

'We Want Miles' is one of those albums from later in the career of Miles Davis that either gets overlooked or rather taken for granted. It really needs to be reassessed, Miles has assembled a great band, the recording is detailed and vivid and the performances focused yet loose. Miles himself is in good form with few hints of fragility. The band cooks. Mike Stern plays his trademark rock-meets Be-Bop solos, solos that are not far short of electrifying. He might just the star of the band. Bill Evans on sax provides plenty of additional excitement with contributions. The anchor of course is bass man Marcus Miller. He has the funk and can swing when required but he is at the centre of the rhythmic pulse at all times, keeping things together with his fluid melodic lines.

The purpose of the album is really to get the message out that the come-back material from albums like 'Man with the Horn' was very much a part of his new direction. Yet as tracks like 'My Man's Gone Now' demonstrate he was willing to refashion old tunes to fit the rockier edge in the music.This period marked a time when Miles was trying to move his ideas in to more accessible areas without compromising the 'free ' element of the music. It all works beautifully. The material is uniformly strong. Unlike the open ended jams that characterise albums like 'Live at Filmore East', here the tracks, long though they are, have a structured composed feel that allow for improvisation without wandering excessively.

'We Want Miles' is a great album. It will bear repeated listening. The level of individual musicianship and group interplay is sufficiently sophisticated to interest even the most jaded ears.
Recommended.

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.
