Contains the brilliant "Lush Life" and "Big Band".
And it's the only way currently to get a copy of the outstanding "So Near, So Far" (Musings for Miles).
When "So Near, So Far" (Musings for Miles) was released back in 1992 it went on to become of our best sellers ever. Essential.
Joe Henderson's follow-up to his hugely successful Lush Life disc is another concept album, this time involving ten songs (including many lesser-known ones) associated with Miles Davis. Henderson only actually played with Davis for a few weekends around 1967 but he shows a great deal of understanding for this potentially difficult music.
With particularly strong assistance from guitarist John Scofield, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Al Foster, Henderson revives such forgotten songs as "Teo," "Swing Spring" and "Side Car" in addition to coming up with fresh interpretations of "Miles Ahead," "Milestones" and "No Blues." He is to be congratulated for not taking the easy way out and sticking to the simpler material of Davis's earlier years.
