Overview

Singer Dennis Rowland pays tribute to Miles Davis on this interesting set. With Wallace Roney or Sal Marquez filling in for Miles and contributing short trumpet solos, Terry Harrington getting a few spots on tenor, and an excellent rhythm section helping out (pianist Joe Sample, bassist Chuck Berghofer and drummer Gregg Field), Rowland performs ten songs associated with Miles Davis. Unfortunately, all of the music is mostly from the 1956-1961 period -- nothing from the second quintet or the fusion years -- so only part of Miles' legacy is explored. But the singer is in excellent form throughout the set, with the highlights including "All Blues," "I Could Write a Book," "'Round Midnight" and a lengthy medley of "The Meaning of the Blues" and "Lament."
