Overview

A bracingly original reinterpretation of music from jazz legend Miles Davis, Miles...From India recasts tracks from Bitches Brew, In A Silent Way, Kind of Blue, and other landmark Miles albums with an East-meets-West sensibility. The album -- recorded in Mumbai, Madras, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles -- features performances by Indian classical and jazz musicians as well as a group of Miles Davis alumni, including John McLaughlin, Ron Carter, Marcus Miller, and Chick Corea. Two dozen musicians in all come together for this cross-cultural jam session that puts a provocative spin on such Miles classics as "All Blues," "Spanish Key," "So What," "It's About That Time," and "Jean Pierre."
