On this 1983 release, Miles Davis rediscovers the blues. He really stretches out on "Star People," making dramatic use of silence and placing each note carefully. "Come Get It" is also memorable although "U 'n' I" (which had the potential to catch on) is only heard in a truncated version.

Overview

On this 1983 release, Miles Davis rediscovers the blues. He really stretches out on "Star People," making dramatic use of silence and placing each note carefully. "Come Get It" is also memorable although "U 'n' I" (which had the potential to catch on) is only heard in a truncated version. In general Davis is in fine form on this set and, although saxophonist Bill Evans is barely heard from (many of his solos were edited out), the contrasting guitars of Mike Stern and John Scofield hold one's interest.

This is a musch under appriciated MD album, and extremly hard to find on disc here in the states (mine is a australian ''Columbia Gold'' import..which set me back close to $50.00) This is a rare find, but well worth the effort. Miles was just begining to get his feet back after 5 years of alienating himself from the music scene. I cant think of a better representation of his late electric phase. This is definatly a better offering then say The man with the horn, and far better then later offerings when he fully embraced the''modern'' music of the 80's. Given it's price it's probibaly only going to land in the hands of more serious collectors, so please, pick up the disc and let me know what you think.
