"FInal Miles: Miles Davis On Warner Brothers"
ghost of miles posted a topic in Jazz Radio & PodcastsLast week's Night Lights show up, with a special thanks to Jsngry, who allowed me to use a quote from an old Organissimo post of his concerning the topic at hand: Final Miles: Miles Davis On Warner Brothers The web post also includes links to the full-length studio outtake of "Can I Play With U?" (the Prince song and recording originally intended for Tutu), Miles' appearance at Prince's 1987 New Year's Eve concert at Paisley Park, and much more.
JazzTimes article about the collaboration that only fleetingly came to pass: The Ballad of Miles Davis and Prince ... also includes this pleasing passage: Eventually the subject turned to other trumpeters. “I knew there were musicians that Miles loved to put down,” Leeds says, so he threw out Lester Bowie’s name, figuring Miles would have little time for the Art Ensemble of Chicago mainstay. Instead, he got this rejoinder: “Eric, why the fuck wouldn’t I love Lester Bowie?”
I am quite enticed by this pairing. I would like to know if anyone has heard these concerts in some form? I really would like to know about the sound quality? Bad recordings really put me off. Thanks Jazz fans.
